The 1963 all-star cast movie remains one of my all-time favourites so much so the screen page of my laptop feature a photo of the late Steve McQueen astride his 1962 Triumph Thunderbird motor-cycle.

Tom was born in Connemara in County Galway on the west coast of Ireland and a part of Ireland that has long been regarded as the real emerald of Ireland.

In 1974 the theater was added to the U.S. National Register of Historical Places and eight years later it was designated a Town Landmark by the Town of Palm Beach.
‘Pocket Change’ is a six-piece R & B band that enjoy playing all over Florida.
