    Excellent, a little bit posed for a party but nonetheless a great shot. That lad with the guitar in his shirt sleeves could have come from any town in Ireland.

    It must've taken some wrangling to get these guys to pose. You can see that they still kept their beer, and one guy is even pouring some more for a friend!
