INEC, Killarney

On arriving in Killarney there were noticeable changes to the facilities and the way things are done now we are living with the pandemic, rather than bringing all life to a halt as a result of it. The marquee with beer garden and street food (as well as a huge screen displaying sport) became the “safe place” as well as my favourite place to eat while in this area. The INEC was packed, as was expected, and the crowd reaction was mighty. There is no welcome as hearty as an Irish one and only the Irish could have caused the renaissance of Alice by adding the “f“ word. With this is mind we were all set for a fantastic night and there were no disappointments on that score. Pete has now firmly established his place as Smokie’s lead singer and he has been made very welcome. Tonight we play in Castlebar where we usually find ourselves when the clocks go back. Enjoy that extra hour in bed.
