Used to drink at Paddy Hynes in the late '60's.I think when we started we were under age,so we drank upstairs in the lounge,less chance of gettin' spotted by grownups that knew you,and might squeel on ya! :-[ I remember Elsie the barmaid loved to listen to that '40's big band sound of Glenn Miler etc,played it nonstop.We did'nt mind though,we knew she suspected we were underage but turned a blind eye O0   Thank you ELSIE,and give's another round :D
