Event Details

The renowned and much loved Robbie McMahon started the Spancilhill Singing Session in Duggan’s Pub, Spancilhill in January 2002. The session quickly thrived mainly due to the popularity, quality and humour of the man himself. Every person who attended and who wanted to sing or recite was called on in turn to perform.

For 10 years and 10 months Robbie’s enthusiasm aided by the eagle eye, helpful nudge and regular prompts of his wife Maura made Robbie’s First Friday a “must go to” fixture on the singing calendar. In November 2012 Robbie’s health took a serious turn and Robbie sadly died the following month.

John Condon, a Cork man living in Clooney and regular singer at Robbie’s session, sat in as Fear a’ Tí, for Robbie that November and along with the support of publican Michael Duggan, has kept the session going since that November.

January 7th, 2022 sees Robbie’s First Friday celebrate their 20th birthday and a great night of singing is anticipated.
