Hole in the Wall – Kilkenny

Mid term break – spent a few nights at The Hole in the Wall, Kilkenny …. great craic !

Monday night was International Film night … watched (the original) Beauty and the Beast, in French, with English subtitles ….. fabulous !

Previous Thursday was Franz Liszt night …. apparently Liszt did a tour of Ireland in the mid 1800’s, fascinating account of his travels & music …. Michael played Liszt on the Glockenspeil,
a vistor from Norway put on the coat and was an imposing figure ! Liszt spent time in Kilkenny, and as The Hole in the Wall was then, as now, a popular tavern … very likely that he visited ….

Music on Friday and Saturday nights … mixture of in house group and impromptu playing from patrons at the bar …. everything from tin whistle to guitar, to drums and digeridoo – with loads of singing in between !
