The Mersey Mash: Mixer # 1

The Mersey Mash: Mixer # 1 22Oct

Across the Festival, Doug Devaney (and his camera man and recordist, Barry) will be collecting your stories.

Why? They will be brought together to create a ‘magazine film’ -called The Mersey Mash– which we’ll present to attendees, at the Liverpool Irish Centre, on 2 Nov.  It will form a record of #LIF2021 and give Doug more information for his podcast The Plastic Podcasts (

To collect these recordings, Doug et al will run the following drop-ins, which we’re calling Mersey Mash Mixers! You don’t have to sign up, but if you have an interesting or meaningful story to tell about Liverpool, Liverpool Irish or Irish connections, Doug would love to hear from you. You can drop-in to any of the sessions (or more than one if you’ve a few stories and fancy a change of scene) within the times shown. Doug will be there to listen, question and record! Pop along.

The Mersey Mash: Mixer #1

12pm-5pm, Fri 22 Oct. Brahms Suite, Liverpool Philharmonic Dining Rooms. Free, no booking necessary

Fri 22 Oct starts the opening weekend of the Liverpool Irish Festival, and the first of Mersey Mash Mixers. What better way to kick both off than with a coffee (or a pint) and a chat, in the Brahms Suite of The Phil? Doug and Barry will be there with camera and mic for anything you want to tell them about your story, your family’s story, Irishness or Liverpool. Or even all four. Whether it’s the time your Gran stepped off the train at Lime Street; when you met your wife at an Irish Centre dance or how you couldn’t move half-a-mile from Bold Street without hitting a green bar, they want to hear it.


Free, just turn up.
