You know what makes for a great hooley? The Dooley Brothers, The Larkin and Moran Brothers, Searson, Eileen Ivers and Immigrant Soul, Finbarr Fagan's Band, Kennedy's Kitchen, Fitz and the Celts, The Sandcarvers, Mike Houlihan and The Irish American Heritage Center's Irish Fest in Chicago, that's what!
Me and John Bowles of PaddyRock Radio had a blast this past weekend covering the event ... catching up with old friends and making many new ones, too.
Now, that's a fine craic my friends, sure!

Irish American Heritage Center IrishFest 2009: Chicago IL July 11 2009
A big, huge "Celtic Camera" thank out to Ashling, Kathy and the rest of the fine folks at the The Irish American Heritage Center. It goes without saying that I'm eternally grateful to all the fine musicians for allowing me to capture their day, but I'd be remiss if I didn't give a extra special thanks and a big hug to Ms. Eileen Ivers ... not only are you the Queen of the fiddle, but your warmth and generosity made my day and warmed my soul ... Slainte, Eileen!
