Rosie O'Grady's

Rosie O'Grady's
my first job as a barmaid
- and what a start it was too!!

People rotten drunk but happy in the daytimes,
good atmosphere in the night
- even if i had to dodge a few bottles
every now and then!

Happy staff and a great landlady
who took no rubbish from anyone!
Doormen you could depend on,
and be mates with!

On paddy's day you had to be
in Rosie's.
Everything was green - even our hair!

Saddest day was leaving there
because of the refurbishment -
but i'll take the memories
with me always.
