Mrs Flannery's was the name of a folk club in Tullamore. Tom McHale, who played there regularly, started his own club in Athlone (in the Jolly Mariner) a few years before his untimely death. Tony Holleran, a fine singer, took over the running of the club subsequently. There is still an Athlone Folk Club, to the best of my knowledge, which is the direct descendant.

Many's the night (and Sunday morning) I spent in Sean's Bar!
