At a special meeting in the Mansion House in Dublin city Pete St John presented a copy of his awareness message on road safety in the form of a unique CD to Lord Mayor Eibhlin Byrne. The song which is written and recorded as a message to all road users to “Never Drink and Drive” was favourably endorsed by the Lord Mayor on all counts. Plans are being set in place to launch the song as part of a nation wide program to save lives on our highways.

Ronnie Drew… a friend who left early!
The sea was calm at Greystones on that day
When friends and strangers came to say good bye
To a Dubliner we knew as Ronnie Drew
Who left the stage without much hue or cry
A man of many parts and simple tastes
He lived his days as sometimes right or wrong
His voice was unforgetably distinct
A loner who had touched our souls in song
I knew Ronnie in the things we shared
A love of Dublin and it’s songs and rhymes
He’ll be always with me when they sing
A bar of Dublin in the Rare ould Times.
Pete St John
