    No one was safe in the Checkerboard Cafe on Saturday night at KerryFest 2019 when our first annual Kerryoke Evening was held.  It was kicked off with a traditional tune by one of our judges Ron Ramsay followed by the irrepressibleConnie Robbins and her love for the Beatles!  

    The evening continued until after 9PM...a new record for our Saturday evening hospitality.  Thanks to Nick Fletcher who queued up the tunes.

    We do have an album....just too bad its not a "talkie."
