Guitarist and sometime vocalist with Kells’ non-standard pop triumvirate HamsandwicH, Podge McNamee has fond memories of meeting Ronnie Drew in Whelan’s in the early 2000s.

The legendary Dubliner walked into the toilet in the music venue on Dublin’s Wexford Street smoking his signature cigar, and went into the only cubicle, leaving the door ajar. Standing at the urinal, Podge noticed he was in the presence of greatness – albeit greatness answering the call of nature – and seized the chance to strike up a conversation.
