Do you remember Club Marche? It was a fun part of Limerick history and anyone who was clubbing in the 80’s will look back at the club with fond memories and many stories to tell. This New Years Eve the Greenhills Hotel are taking us back in time to those special days, to the great era of the 80’s. They have created a night full of 80’s nostalgia and bringing alive for one night only, the great club that was ‘Club Marche’. Daphne Greene, Manager of the Greenhills Hotel tells me, “Over the year so many people have asked me about the club. There is so much good feeling and nostalgia towards it. I even know two couples who met at Club Marche and ended up getting married! Its a piece of Limerick history and the 80’s were such a special time in Limerick. Money was scarce so people wanted to meet and socialise and dance away their troubles. The music was amazing and the feeling was something that you cannot explain. That’s why we have decided to recreate it for one special night only. We are giving the people of Limerick, a chance to step back in time for one night only!”
From the time you arrive you will be brought back in time with fantastic footage all around you of the great music era that was the 80’ with video footage from MTV to Top of the Pops. Daphne and her team have recreated the disco club and with lights, sparkle and and of course disco balls! The retro menu of the night will take everyone back to the culinary delights of the time with old favourites like prawn cocktail, chicken maryland, and baked-alaska being just some of the treats that you can choose on the night. After this delicious 4 course Dinner, the DJ of that time, Mike Richardson of BL Radio, who was also a DJ for a famous Limerick radio station in the 80’s called Big L, will get the party started, until the very late hours of the morning.
