  1. These photographs bring back wonderful memories of the great “Band Era” that was in Ireland in the 70’s.
    In the bottom right hand corner of the Dixies shot, is Joe O’Toole who was there lead singer then. He came to prominence when he had a group called “Joe O’Toole and The Apples” and they came second in a talent competition run by RTE. I was there on the final night and recognised that Joe had a unique talent not only as a singer, but as a song writer as well, and I became there manger the next day.
