Then she went over to Benner's Hotel and spoke with John Kelly about life and love (a bit) and music (a lot) for another fifteen minutes or so. And then she went home. She was only in Dingle for three or four hours but even at the time we knew it had been pretty magical. And so did Anthony Wall, the Grand High Poobah at the BBC's Arena division.
