The first time I saw Cáit O' Riordán in the flesh was at a Pogues gig in Leisureland, Galway sometime in the 80's. I can't remember the year but it must have been early on in their career because it was by no means a sell out. I was in awe of her. The Pogues looked like a bunch of Gun totin' outlaws. Cáit looked like she didn't suffer fools gladly and would fill you full of lead as soon as look at ya. She won't remember but I kind of met her for the first time briefly at a gig in the RDS to raise money for the Tsunami survivors back in 2004. Then I met her properly at her graduation party a few years ago in The Grand Social Club. Nevertheless I was pretty nervous about this interview. I think it went pretty well.
