Renegade acoustic tour 09 finished up at the Dun Uladh Centre in Omagh last night April 5th.The 10 dates were all sold out and a great atmosphere at each show.The line-up was Sharon,Gerry'Banjo 'O Connor ,Mike Mc Goldrick,Dezi Donnelly and Tim Edey. Leon ONeill (Sharons sound engineer guested on mandolin and gave a great rendition of The Galway Girl during the encore each night).Last night was a particularily good one as Dezis family from his fathers side, all come from Fintona, a few miles down the road from Omagh.So the relations were out in force.
The weather was great for the tour and we met up with some old friends and gained some new ones.
Our new discovery was the Glenbeigh Hotel in Kerry which was just brilliant......surrounded by spectacular scenery.Mary Keary and her staff really looked after us.
At De Barras we met up with Bobby Blackwell and Brian O Regan, just back from New York.Also from the US,was our old friend Brian O Donovan from Boston along with his brother James. Another ODonovan brother Ray turned up at the Thatch outsideTullamore.
Next week its the UK...more then.....
