    • Hello Steve,

      Unfortunately we don’t know! We think he must have appeared at the Town Hall as part of his popular tours at the time.

  1. Hi, I am writing a book on Irish music, including Harry Plunket Greene. Please can you tell me is it possible to get a copy of this photo, or where it is housed.
    Kind regards
