The above video is of The Loopliners and was recorded in the in The Big Tree pub 1990s. The Loopliners were Ivan O'Reilly on acoustic guitar and vocals, Stephen Sheridan on Banjo and vocals, Ned Farrell on bass guitar and vocals and Derek Connolly on lead guitar. The band played to a full house in The Big Tree pub every Sunday for about seven years and great craic was had by all. Alas Stephen is no longer with us and is sadly missed by all in the Big Tree which is now called The Estuary.

The Estuary also have a golf society which is part funded by the Envelope Numbers Draw which takes place during the Monday night quiz. 3 numbers are drawn for the prize.

comment: from Jim- i sometimes drink in the estuary but not as often,because every time we visit theres horse racing on tv from open to close 7 days.iv noticed trade is down as regards the recession, but this may contribute also. Jim

Comment-- A good old pub to relax and enjoy good food, good music and friendly atmosphere with reasonably priced drink. The only pub in Swords with no door men/bouncers and never any trouble. History Of The Big Tree Pub
