Thanks for providing St Patrick'sDay feedback. More info re where the great music coul be found would have been a help.
I was born and have lived in Brisbane for many decades . I saw the parades start up at Dooley's Pub in the Valley. Attended All Hallows where this was a major celebration- not many in those days! Loss of the Irish Club very sad 😥
