A good night was had in Fitzmaurices in Ballinlough recently when a young band of lads from America stopped by on their "tour of Ireland". The band were the "Can Kickers" from connecticut USA. A washboard , fiddle and banjo were their instruments - and they sure gave them some stick! Some of the older regulars were a bit shocked as they walked in for their normal pint of stout - but the Can Kickers soon put a smile on their faces. They play what they call "old time" music with a bit of a kick - and when one regular joined in on spoons things really got going. Not a normal Thursday night in Ballinlough - but maybe it needs a biy of a kick!?
