Last weekend several of us went to Ireland to help Packie Manus Bryne celebrate his 95th birthday!! - He is well, and as witty as ever. At his house he did a duet with Bonny Shaljean on harp and him playing mouthorgan - superb! In the pub (the Corner House in Ardara, Donegal)he sat surrounded by musicians and singers from all over the place, and many pictures were taken. Just as he was leaving a man wanted to sing one of his songs so they did a sort of duet - magical. He did say "Well I'll see you in five years time then - but of course some of you may not be around by then"!!!
I first met him in 1965 and it has always been a privilege to know him - I have never heard him say a bad word about anyone - nor anyone say a bad word about him - a real gentleman. Happy birthday and Good Luck Packie!

PS: When I first saw the thread title I read it as "Packie Byrne 951" - he'll probably manage it, too.

Packie is a Life President of Llantrisant Folk Club, an honour bestowed on him after he played several stunning sets with Bonnie S. at the folk club and pub festivals. I can imagine him playing with Bonnie in Ardara - happy birthday, Packie!
