The great Lisa O’Neill invited my wife Aideen and I to a music session in Walsh’s of Stoneybatter one evening in 2018. It was a Sunday. That year Lisa and Radie Peat would often pick a Sunday when they were both off to strike up a few tunes in the company of friends. That’s where to the best of my recollection I first heard Kú Kilian (Kilian O’Flanagan]. A young fella with a voice that sounds at least 50 years older than he looks. The last time I heard Kilian play was before lockdown, where he single handedly stole the chatter from every corner, nook and snug of Walsh’s on a busy Monday night with this song. Sometimes a whole pub will stop what they’re doing to listen because they don’t recognise the song. It’s a common occurrence in a bar where you can be sure every customer has a few tunes of their own under the belt. A fresh song might well spark a new love affair. A bolt of passion from the blue of a new tune, a honeymoon. Rivalled only by a shot of that Whiskey which only comes down from the top shelf if you’re good, and listen (Can you tell I’m missing pubs?
Never quite sure if the film enhances the song or the song enhances the film. Either way so lovely to watch.
