The Wednesday sessions have been running now for over eighteen months, from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm, and have proved to be a popular event for local seniors seeking alternative mid-week entertainment, in which they all participate to some degree. Music and song has been provided regularly during that time by Kevin Nolan on accordion; Margaret Dooley (songs, plus the occasional demonstration of the dance - 'Varsovienne', also known as 'Shoe the Donkey'); Gerry Walsh - well-known local professional singer; Bim Connors - another well-known local professional, with his digital orchestral backing tracks; Davy ('Busty') Griffin - who comes out regularly from Waterford City - accordion, songs, jokes and yarns galore; Tom Comerford - still another popular local professional singer; Con Lucy - ballads galore, usually of County Cork origin; not forgetting some trad, folk, and other pieces on the harmonica and concertina , plus an occasional song and photography by 'your's truly'! There are quite a few others who drop in 'out of the blue' and contribute still more songs and music, but I do not have all their names.
Percy Wall, from Newtown (Kilmacthomas), wasn't long sitting down when we discovered he was a singer, whom some may have heard occasionally at Lenihans' of Newtown.
He obliged with about four 'country' songs, all of which were well received!
