Podcast: March 19, 2016

Flood Brothers Disposal presents The Skinny & Houli Show as we wrap up the St. Patrick’s Day festivities with a visit from Joe Carroll, the deputy mayor of County Cork, in town for the weekend. Joe is from Skibbereen and tells tales of his days as a bus driver in Ireland before getting into politics. Then another Cork man, the great Irish tenor Paddy Homan, stops in to say hello and winds up singing “The Banks of My Own Lovely Lee” and Joe and his Cork colleague Sean O’Callaghan join in with Paddy for a rousing rendition of their favorite tune. Classic! Eileen Ryan comes by to talk up the Paul Galvin benefit at the IAHC and finally Paddy Houlihan, co-host of the Houli’s Hooley, joins us directly from Dick Quigley’s Blue Cross/Blue Shield Labor Paddy’s Day Party at Plumbers Hall and Paddy tells some jokes about booze, credits cards and show biz! So we’re sitting with two Paddys and a Houli, or is it two Houli’s and a Paddy? Regardless, Paddy Homan closes the show with his boxing ring announcer routine to wrap up probably one of our best shows in history, a craic’in good show. This is a keeper! See for yourself!
