John Brogan Farewell Show

On 21 September 2008, the Olympia Theatre (72 Dame St) bid farewell to John Brogan:

For over 30 years, he has worked tirelessly as stage manager for The Olympia Theatre, looking after hundreds of acts and helping to make sure every show ran smoothly. So now he's retiring, what better way was there for the Olympia to say "Thank You" than by putting him centre stage for once, with a night of music and comedy in his honour! Among the guests were The Dubliners, Rebecca Storm, Camille O' Sullivan, The Coronas, Dustin, Frances Black, The Fleadh Cowboys, Brian Kennedy, Panti, Mary Coughlan, The Coronas, Something Happens, Mary Coughlan, David Hayes Orchestra, Sharon Shannon, David Hayes Orchestra and Declan O' Rourke. The lads opened with the usual set of tunes, Patsy did The Ferryman and Dirty Old Town, Barney sang I wish I Had someone to love me and John did the Tribute to Ronnie.
