Paddy Brennan Collection

In 1994, Paddy Brennan and the Limerick Rock n' Roll Club published The Golden Era of Irish Showbands, an excellent collection of articles, photos and interesting facts that captured the essence of the era. Sadly, the publication is no longer in print, but we were able to contact Paddy and get his permission to reproduce many of the photos from that publication here. Although some are not of the highest quality, this is because we are working from a copy of the book, as opposed to an original. We appreciate his support and hope you enjoy sharing this collection.
