O’Learys Irish Bar: ST. PATRICKS DAY
It’s not long now until March 17th which is Ireland’s national holiday and in some ways, the world’s holiday! It’s one of our favourite days of the year and last year was absolutely fantastic fun! This year, we’re going even bigger! We have some proper Irish music all afternoon with our favourite resident Paddy, Paul Hayes LIVE FROM 1300HRS! Paul can literally sing anything but we’re sure he’s gonna break out all his proper Irish songs for this one!
As if that wasn’t enough we have even more live music later that night! From 2100hrs we have yet another new artist!
Vo Fletcher will be live doing an incredible mix of folk and blues. This man is super talented!
We’ll also have plenty food and drink surprises on the day so basically, we’ve got St. Patrick’s day on the beach sorted again this year! FB-Link
