I recall that Matt Kane's was on 13th Street in the block south of 
Massachusetts Avenue. In the middle 60's there was also a place on Colorado 
Avenue, owned by a fellow named John Gaffney, called the Emerald Isle. I 
never saw any live music there but there was a juke box with Irish American 
sentimental tunes on it and some trad music. I used to take my kids there on 
Sundays to show them something other than Elvis. It was always crowded on 
Sundays with emigrants and first generation Irish.

Billy would have to answer the question about his arrival in DC but Peggy 
and Lou were very active in getting ceili and set dancing going in the DC 
area. Some years ago, it was after Peggy died,  Billy engineered a tribute 
to Lou at J. Patrick's in Baltimore.

All the Best,

Jim Owens
