Seán’s Impromptu Barbeque

Amidst the magnificent scenic area of Knocknakilla, Millstreet during a recent summer evening blessed with excellent weather,  Seán Murphy decided to organise an impromptu barbeque in the picturesque setting of his garden. Lots of Friends were alerted and dutifully attended to enjoy a superb barbeque, excellent live music by Danoel (Danny Creedon & Noel O’Leary) and a most memorable campfire singalong where the annual St. John’s Night bonfire tradition was upheld.   A brief LTV2 feature was also recorded at this very happy and utterly cheerful event.  Such was the success of the mighty occasion that it may well become an annual event….perhaps!
