Mrs Rockett's Pub
Last updated: 22.01.22
This is a splendid rousing Irish song praising Missus Rocket and her pub an establishment which outshines the Vatican, Buckingham Palace, the Taj Mahal and all the palaces in Siam. You have never lived, as the song goes, until you've been to Rockett's Pub.
Mrs. Rockett was an actual person who ran her pub near Tranmore, County Waterford and was often visited by Tommey Maken of The Clancy Brothers.
The song may be found in The Irish Songbook and We're Only Here For The Beer! - Light.
