GAAAAAY in Limerick?
QUEERBASH ONCE MORE
The wonderful queerbash is here again. I used to attend this when I lived in Limerick. Last year I had some pretty amazing gold eyeshadow on, but that's beside the point. It's always been a really great night. and I am delighted to see they changed the venue from that Bentley's place as it was on there last year and, meh. Also from Bakers the year before to the lovely Dola
ns warehouse which has always been friendly to the scene in Limerick. Although, tis worthwhile asking, why not in confessions? the excellent club run by Sheila Fitz and Madonna Lucia? (*man I miss that pole in that club) is that still on?
anyway, you may notice V.A.G in attendance. (the music not the girl parts, although going on previous years events.......) I was delighted to see the girls featured in GCN this month as well.
But seriously, it's only 10 yoyos and you know yourself that Dolans is well worth a tenner. The bulmers is lovely down there. Sheila Fitzpatrick and Dolans for a tenner? bargain. It's on the 26th of March.
I'm not sure if I will be attending this year as things are up in the air at the moment with the website and work is pouring in. If I can make it. I will. So you could be seeing me there kids!
What is going on in the world?
A few weeks ago I posted a post about a new gay bar in Limerick which had opened on Thomas street. It had taken over the former players bar up the top of the street.
I just got a message to say it has closed down.
It opened in January amidst problems. A quick visit to the website/facebook confirms that they had serious issues with the police, licenses and neighbours. There were a lot of apologies issued on facebook which is never good.
It's a shame because Limerick really needed this.
However, that venue seems cursed. I had worked with players bar when it opened taking over from Rumours the cocktail bar. I planned a solo art exhibition in there. When mysteriously a month after the grand opening. it closed down. with not a word. I had to hear off someone else. I never got my art back either. I know that that bar has been everything from a strip club to a sports bar to a gay bar and back again.
It's a shame as the bar is really very nice inside. It's just a little bit off the beaten track for people. Most people trip up to bakers place from Mickey's and that does them. So it didn't work.
it's a shame.
