"Whelan's", Dublin's upscale music and concert club cum bar and pub, filled up to the brim on 12 August 2011. Brothers Brendan and Declan Murphy, two of the "4 of us", about to come on stage.
The crowd waiting in anticipation (and having a couple of pints in the process, of course ;-))
And by the way (as Rudyard Kipling might have said): A Guinness is but a Guinness, but a well-pulled Smithwick's is a drink. Or the other way round, if you prefer stout over ale.
