By Paul Mulholland: The Glensmen were from County Antrim and were very
popular around Co. Antrim and further afield. They played as resident
band in the Flamingo, Ballymena every Wednesday night and it was always
packed to capacity. Manager and lead vocalist Leo McCaffrey was from
Ballymena, the rest of the band members were from Dunloy and Cloughmills.
I was talking to two of the surviving members of the Glensmen, Seamus
Richmond And Tony Lyndsay who are still playing music and they told me
the names of The Glensmen on the photograph which was taken in 1962-63.
