Music legend visits Paddy’s Point this weekend – by guest blogger Paul Cullen – Comaskey Properties

We’re very lucky in this area that over the last ten years we’ve had the opportunity to witness first hand some of the world greatest guitarists – Bo Diddley, George Benson and Gary Moore to name just three…Well, in the coming week you will be able to add another name to that list. A person that I have admired and played on the radio for many years.

If I say that he has shared stages and toured with the likes of Bon Jovi, Thin Lizzy, Meatloaf and more. He has performed at most of the world’s biggest festivals including Knebworth and Reading….and is now widely regarded as Ireland’s greatest living guitarist you must have guessed that I’m talking about Pat McManus.

Yes that’s right – the Pat McManus of Mama’s Boys & Celtus fame.

The Pat McManus Band will be performing three exclusive shows at Paddy’s Point on Fri 10th, Sat 11th & Sun 12th July.

Pat,  a maestro of the guitar and fiddle will be joined on stage by bass player Marty McDermott and drummer Paul Faloon (a regular visitor to these parts) for a series of shows that have attracted interest far and wide.

So, do yourself a favour and get down to Paddy’s Point on one, iIf not all three of the nights and experience the unique blend of Celtic Blues Rock that is the Pat McManus Band.

PS: A big heads up to Hazel and Rory for pulling out the stops on these gigs #paddyspoint2015
