"My name 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."
