Gerry in phone box

During the Willie Clancy in the 1990's I would be asked how my sister Eilish was getting on in Australia, where she was then living. One night , after a good session in Conways of Mullagh , on being evicted from the bar I decided to ring Eilish up and play her a few tunes and have some friends find out for themselves how she was getting on in Australia to her in Australia .. We amassed a great a great number of 50 pence coins for the call!
