is Bridget Darby originally from Trim, Co Meath. I am 63,
divorced, retired and living near Guadalajara in Mexico. Thanks
to youtube I stumbled on footage of Maurice Lynch and remembered
the fun I had as a fan all those years ago! Around 1964 I
worked at the Aclare House Hotel in Drumconrath, Co Louth.
Drumconrath is the home of Gerry Muldoon, his family ran the
local post office there! Gerry invited me to a gig in County
Down, I remember crossing the border and being asked if I was
carrying anything!! I left Ireland in 1965 to go to England and
lost touch with so many."
