Róisín has her cake and eats it

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Gal­way’s most fa­mous mu­sic venue the Róisín Dubh cel­e­brates its sev­enth birth­day to­mor­row with a free gig. The pub came un­der new man­age­ment in 2004 and has seen many high-pro­file acts pass through its doors.

To­mor­row’s gig will be head­lined by Jape who has played the venue many times. He will be joined by Square­head, Ru­ral Sav­age, other bands and a num­ber of guest DJs, while there’ll be com­edy from Rob­bie Bon­ham.

There will also be a bar­be­cue, free drinks and “tra­di­tional hi-jinks in our inim­itable style”, ac­cord­ing to the venue’s booker Gu­gai.

“We’ve come a long way since we re-opened the doors back in June 2004,” he said. “It’s been a grad­ual process in­volv­ing much tweak­ing and many al­ter­ations, but I think that’s some­thing that’ll never change – we’ll al­ways be look­ing for ways to im­prove the venue and pro­vide a bet­ter ser­vice to our artists and cus­tomers.”
