Sally Gardens is rocking as Paddy's song is launched

The Sally Gardens, Creewood, Slane was rocking for the debut of the "Paddy Meade Song" written and performed by Alan Louth.

The song was launched at a combined event facilitating Cllr. Paddy Meade's belated 30th Birthday party and his Local Election Campaign Launch. Music on the night was provided by Alan Louth, Mary Duff, Andrew Cassidy, Vincent Finnegan, and other local acts.

Mairead McGuinness MEP gave a fine speech regarding the importance of the European Parliament before Paddy took to the stage with an upbeat speech covering his record on the council for the last 5 years and his plans for the next 5, should he be elected on May 24th.

The Song: "The Paddy Meade's Song", written by Slane artist Alan Louth also features a video, starring local Councillor Paddy.

The Idea came about when Paddy went seeking a Local Improvement Scheme grant for the road that singer Alan Louth lived on. It had got to a stage where locals couldn't drive on the road and thus had to park at the end of it. The production was produced by Colin Scallan from Stackallen and features Alan on vocals and guitar.

The music video was produced by Aidan Farrelly of BadAppleFilims. The video, staring Alan and Paddy was recorded in Coalpits and Rathmaiden, Slane along roads that have been fixed in recent years.
