Luke Kelly: Dubliner, Working-Class Hero.

The man, the hair, the voice!

Love his songs, love his attitude, and drink nearly as much as he used to.:wink:

Do any of you Dopers have any interesting anecdotes about Lukey?

[shite, time for editing is up] And if not: any fans?

Just that one of my closest friends in high school was his niece and god-daughter. My daughter is named after one of his wife Deirdre’s sisters.

My Mam was friends with Ronnie Drew and met Luke a few times. He liked his pints I will tell you that. I saw him a few times when I was a child around Ballybough and Fairview (there is a bridge named after him in Ballybough).
