Pio McCann referred to Merle haggard as Merle Taggart the other day
Pio McCann! :)

I stayed in a B&B about ten years ago where the owner had some connection with Ritz Records. She had a load of gold and platinum records on the walls. I had no idea Country & Irish was so big until then. Immediately after that I got the idea of attempting to audition for Michael English's band. He's from the same village as me, and I was playing drums a lot around that time, so I felt confident. My nerve faltered when I saw the calibre of musicians he had on his albums - Noel Eccles on drums etc. It's quite the subculture, and there's huge money spent on the music. Louis Walsh managed Michael English for a couple of years.

There's an artist doing a film project on the Country & Irish scene, more or less a documentary, which is being made at the moment I think...about time.

@GO I always thought a good way to get in to this stuff was to enter a few song competitions. What's your stage name? I had a whole cabaret band thing mapped out (just for the crack) with my brother. My stage name was Sunny Large. We may end up recording a few songs sometime, I still think it's hilarious.

Went to the Arnotts warehouse clearance hell thing in the national show centre. Saw a nice table. It had a built in Bluetooth speaker. No password required to connect.

Commenced my DJ set.
