Singers & Musicians, 1990s, Photos by Luke Cheevers


Luke Cheevers, from the old Dublin fishing village of Ringsend, is a dramatic and entertaining singer specialising in Dublin songs, and he has been a familiar performer at singing festivals in all parts of Ireland since the 1970s. For many years he has also been a stalwart of the Góilín Singers Club which has met regularly in a variety of Dublin venues since the early 1980s. Luke is also a photographer, and he has donated a selection of his photographs taken at musical events in the 1990s to the Irish Traditional Music Archive.

Those reproduced here were taken mainly at the Góilín Club when it met in the Ferryman pub at Sir John Rogerson’s Quay on the Liffey and later in the Trinity Inn on Pearse St; others come from the Féile na Bóinne festival in Drogheda, and elsewhere.

 With thanks to Luke Cheevers.
