The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Front Page -

Whe­lan’s isn’t the only es­teemed Ir­ish venue cel­e­brat­ing its 20th birth­day this year – The Stables in Mullingar, Co West­meath is also plan­ning a party to com­mem­o­rate two decades in busi­ness.

Play­ing this Sun­day, De­cem­ber 20th, will be “The Stables All-Stars”, a huge gath­er­ing of mu­si­cians who have graced the stage over the past two decades. Among them will be well-known acts such as Paddy Casey, as well as plenty of lo­cal he­roes such as The Af­ter­math and In­nate. The Bl­iz­zards, who be­gan their ca­reer at the venue, are also ru­moured to be drop­ping in to play one of their fi­nal gigs be­fore tak­ing a break.

Best of all, and in keep­ing with the spirit of 1989, en­trance on the night is a mere 50c. Pro­ceed­ings kick off at 6pm.

The Stables opened its doors in 1989 af­ter founders Tommy and Miriam MacManus de­cided that the Mid­lands were in des­per­ate need of a qual­ity venue in or­der to en­tice Ir­ish and in­ter­na­tional mu­si­cians alike be­yond the Pale. Over the years it has hosted every­one from John Mar­tyn to Duffy.
