Jury's Inn so. I will try to make it from Limerick for 5pm or thereabouts. Hope to meet as many as possible. I will have two of my offspring in tow (30 and 24 years old).

I've heard on the grapevine that Leonard will be visiting Joe Dolan's grave - he especially asked to as he's a great admirer of Joe's work, particularly "Tar & Cement" and "Teresa" which hugely influenced "Suzanne."

Hi jd, hi everyone,

This will be my first time in Dublin, and a very good excuse to visit your beautiful city.

Look forward to seeing you all on Sunday at the Jury's Inn :) .
(Please wear your LC T-shirts or fedoras so that I can recognize you.)

jd, thank you once again for the excellent ticket :D !

Take care,
Heike

Hi
Is there anyone else still waiting for the arrival of their tickets for Sun and Monday night gigs in Dublin??? Should I be concerned that we still have not received ours (bought through the forum).
Thanks!

Hi Buringviolin
thanks for that and yes of course when I checked that was how I had opted for my tickets without realising it - so now have them printed and in my hand! Kinda miss the old-fashioned ticket which I could then add to the collection!!! Here's to great nights in Dublin :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hope to be at Jury's Inn before the concert. What time are people meeting?

Staying at the Maldron Hotel, Cardiff Lane Saturday and Sunday nights which appears to be a short walk from Jury's and the O2.

Has anybody any suggestion of a good music venue / theatre or any entertaiment that I could go to on Saturday night?

Hi

first time posting on this site. Can anyone confirm the concert starts at 20:00 (8pm), I'm just a worrier and the only time info I see is 18:30 (6:30pm), doors open? Don't want to miss any!!

Hope to meet a few LC devotees in Jury's on Sunday after 17:00.

HI plywood violin, yes the concert usually starts exactly at 8pm, so best to be in your seat before that. You are in for an amazing night! Hope to see everyone in Jurys on sunday night also.

There is a support act - Tar & Cement - a Joe Dolan tribute band and on the last night the Web Sisters (an internet only band) are also playing - by satellite from Savannah Georgia- 27 Avetura St, I gather.

tinderella have you been to anything in the new O2 yet? I have heard it is amazing, and you can't get a bad seat.
