After having a meal in Derry city, Henry Kelly and myself went along to Bennigans Bar. We walked along the river and on to Foyle Rd., entered John St., by a semi- alleyway. A guy looked up at me and said "mind yourself Mucker", referring to the Traffic coming of the roundabout. We were well warned as traffic comes at you from the right as you step onto the pedestrian crossing. Looking straight across the bright window of the bar beckons. I am anticipating something different in the City for a Sunday evening and I owed Henry a treat as the last time we had met,it was in London and he introduced me to the Dover St., wine bar. (Across from the Ritz Hotel). John Leighton has commenced a Jazz Club in Bennigans Bar on Sunday nights, what a treat this little gem is, great atmosphere,lovely solos from guests and hey! Derrys own Gay McIntyre..In a well run establishment like this, bar staff present their beers, minerals and pint glasses with their lables facing you as should be.,
