Rob Dunford, Folk Northwest Radio Correspondent, writes:

The "Lanky-celtic" band The O'Reallys, formerly based at The Horseshoe, Ringley near Bolton have, in Python-esque terms "ceased to be". They've been cited in FNW over the last couple of years in both reviews (St. Pat's Day gig) and "offshoot" CD, reviewed in Winter 2013/14 issue. Members have also been guests a couple of times since last October on Ali O'Brien and Bernard Cromarty's esteemed "Sounds of Folk" show on Oldham Community Radio 99.7fm.

How this will impact on music nights at their once regular Tuesday at The Horseshoe, and Thursday monthlies at The Hare and Hounds, Radcliffe and The Trackside Bar, Bury Bolton Street Station, remains to be seen although at the latter, according to a Stockport-based folk "what's on" website, an open-to-all session is listed, last in month.
