St - Stepping into Madden's is like stepping into the Gaeltacht.
Small and busy, the pub hums with the rhythms of Celtic life,
its walls full of posters in Irish heralding the traditional
music events. Its wooden chairs, benches and tables are covered
with pints of stout and the happy debris of a great night's
entertainment in the traditional Irish manner. Bodhrans and
mandolins line the walls, and rarely does an evening go by
when someone does not produce a guitar for a session filled
with ancient melodies. Once inside Madden's, the modern industrial
city outside suddenly seems very far away.
