Thursday 21st March upstairs at The Lamplighter 19.00-22.00
No Ian and Wendy this week but are you concerned that with Brexit approaching NUGs had missed the opportunity to recognise St Patrick’s Day as it fell on a Sunday?
Well relax – we have negotiated The Irish Backstop!
Those nice people in the Government have consulted their friends in Brussels and have granted us a limited extension until Thursday 21stMarch to play an Irish playlist but only if it is significantly different from previous weeks' lists.
I realise that a slight majority of you would have voted to include songs such as Danny Boy and Paddy McGinty’s Goat but after consultation with the European Research Group we feel that it is in the best interest of the country and indeed the rest of Europe for us to persevere with broadly the same songs we know and love!
Members of the NUGs- we live in uncertain times and we are faced with a turbulent future – for example, will Mitch be bringing his penny whistle to accompany the songs; will Colin retaliate with an amendment to include Those Were the Days and Delilah – will Ian and Wendy be allowed back in to England from Scotland next weekend?
These are the major issues of State and it is important that you meaningfully vote for the songlist below.
I commend this songlist to the House!!
