06 John Jo Gardiner and Gerry Seisiún 1974.jpg

Seisiun was a traditional music, song and dance carbaret first produced in Dundalk by Rory Kennedy in 1972. As part of the show John Joe Gardiner and me would play a duet piece; often the "Star of Munster and the Boys of the Lough." Crowds of up to 500 people came to the show in the summer months of 1972 -75 when I was in the show.
