A NIGHT of “feast and revelry” and “tipsy dance and jollity” will be held later this month at Bobby Byrne’s pub to celebrate Robert Burns night.

On Thursday, January 24, at 8pm, the O’Connell Avenue pub will play host to a typically Scottish meal to celebrate the night belonging to Scotland’s national poet.

Organised for the last seven years by Noel Flannery and Michael Potter, this year’s celebration will once again feature acclaimed actor Myles Breen in the role of Robert Burns.

The night will also include haggis and sandwiches, pipe and violin music, and poems and songs - and those who wish to throw in a piece of literature are more than welcome to do so, according to Clarina man Michael.

An added attraction this year is the playing of Uilleann Pipes by Italian player Martin O’Bacca.
