Thread Name: Are the sessions real in Ireland?
Subject: RE: Folklore: Are the sessions real in Ireland?
'Made up sessions', Yes there are lots around , especially in the tourists areas you mentioned, They are there to get the tourists in to buy drink.
Has anybody ever seen the American tourists who wander into an Irish pub wearing wind breakers and back packs ans sit at a table with one drink between six of them and spend the whole night there taking up space ? You will find them during the summer season in Kilkenny , Galway , Clare and Temple Bar Dublin.
I don't want to offend the American contributors to this board but this type of American visitor to Ireland is almost widespread during the summer.
They sit , appreciate the music but do not buy drink.
