The Local

Déise Sessions


1 review

Donnchadha Gough is  the owner of the world-famous bar in Dungarvan, The Local. He is also a member of one of the elite traditional Irish music bands of our times, Danú.

  He sent a box of these up to me towards the end of the first month of 2021 and it features  top-drawer music played by 20 musicians who regularly play sessions in the pub.

  I love the association of traditional Irish music with a pub in an area. In Clare we have the mythic Peppers in Feakle, Dublin has O' Donoghues and The Local fits easily in with these hallowed establishments.

  The art work on the cd is very special and to me it represents a real Mad Hatter's musical party of the best of traditional Irish music in Déise country.
