hope she can get in.
I don't drink, the over 18 door policy is so widespread that it's rarely mentioned as being discriminatory.
bizarrely the prison officers club was the goto for underage drinking in portlaoise. cheap beer too. and they held very occasional gigs from local young lad bands.I used to bunk onto the Dart and get off in Seapoint and walk up to the Comhaltas Ceoltóirí because you'd get served at any age at all it seemed.
You'd be all sneaked in, getting the pints, staying as anonymous as possible, and out of nowhere a gig was underway. And it was tough it out or stay sober. So, yeah, you do what you have to do.
Some of the gigs were actually quite good it turned out. Then all you had to do was the drunken sprint for the last Dart into town and you'd have yourself an economical night.

Here’s the man himself at the very gig! https://www.rte.ie/archives/2015/0706/713030-lark-in-the-park/My first gig was the Lark in the Park near there (pre-DART) aged 7 to see the Boomtown Rats, and ended up with fucking Brush Shields.
Did you guys manage to get tickets in the end?I wanted to go to Mitski with my eldest daughter, as did @hugh with his. We prevaricated* over the under-18 issue (my daughter will be three months off 18) and missed out.

*** in Hugh's case
So there's an auld story for you.
(There was also the issue that Mitski's crossover appeal to teenage girls and middle aged men that made me slightly questioning of my motivations above and beyond just going to a gig with my daughter, and my daughter possibly being privy to such possibilities, or at least suspicious of their existence, which made me think twice and thus miss the boat.)
