Ray Collins the well known singer from Athlone arrived early last night to tell
us that he had spent a number of hours out on Lough Ree with a T.V. film group.
The lake must have done him good as he sang several songs with Paudge Bennett.
There was competition as Paudge's daughter Sarah Anne was with her father for
the first time in months due to her working in Dublin for her holidays.
Joe Hann on Bodhran and the brother Mick on trombone joined in to give the
Polish dancers something to work on.
The two Norfolk couples on the cruiser survived the eggs and decided to stay
another night before setting off for Carrick on Shannon early this morning.
