The Red Hat Club - a new time of the month in April
Thanks to Paul McEvoy for news of the Red Hat Acoustic Music Club, which got off to a rousing start in its new venue - the Harbour View Hotel, Naas, Co. Kildare - on Friday 1 February. The Club's next meeting will be on Friday 1 March; after that, the dates will move from the firs to the second Friday each month. Thus the April meeting will be on Friday 12 April, starting at 8.30 p.m.; all musicians and listeners are welcome.
The hotel is easily located, especially for anyone who remembers driving through Naas town centre on the way to Newbridge and beyond before the M7 was built. Follow R445 down South Main St. and turn right at the Murtagh's Corner traffic lights on to New Row. This is still on the R445, and the hotel is easily seen about 200 yards down on the right, on the far side of an intersection. There is plenty of parking space. The sign visible as you approach from the town centre says 'Harbour Hotel' (which is also the name on the website); but over the front door the full name 'Harbour View Hotel' appears.
