Olwen wrote::D Managed to get my tickets, yippee- but accommodation was harder to find. So for anyone who is not having any luck, Today I booked the Yeats Country Hotel , Rosses Point , Sligo- about 7 miles from Lissadell house. Hope to see you all there at the concert!
I keep stressing this point - there is not a lot of accomodation in the area (and by that I mean within a 50km radius) - book now or be disappointed
2008 - dublin (kilmainham - the best, ever)
2009 - dublin (The Point) and tampa and NY(MSG) and san jose
2010 - sligo (second best) and oakland and portland and las vegas
2011 - lenny and me were resting, so we were
2012 - dublin (kilmainham again) and austin
2013 - dublin (The Point, 2 times)
2014 & 2015-enjoying the memories and saving the pennies; just in case; just in case..............

Good on you, Olwen ! :D It's fascinating reading the reactions here; some people sound as if they wouldn't be satisfied unless they were sitting on Leonard's lap ( or Xavier's, since he sits down !)
Others are happy just to be under the same roof, or in this case the same moonlight/rain as Leonard.
Reminds me of lines by Oscar Wilde:

One saw mud, the other stars."

Thank you Jarkko for arranging the presale for Sligo! it is much appreciated...
I am officially announcing I am coming!!! as I said early this morning
WIld horses couldn't keep me away...
I didn't want to post on this thread until I had decided for sure.
will be thrilled to see some of you I know
Lady Di, Maarten, Wendy, Irish Mar, Mary B, Purple Princess and so many others yet to meet...
I will be coming from the Seattle area.
This is the first presale I have been on that had sooo many people online..must have been way over 200 of us from the forum.
I was on from 1am to 2:48 and only twice did section A come up. I stupidly let them go by as I was looking for 'better' seats.
We are all so lucky to be seeing Leonard live and whatever seat we have will be magical. (Aren't I in a good mood after such little sleep).
I did finally decide I better get a seat so am in Section B row K in the middle...thank you to Diana and Irish Mar who were emailing me in the middle of the sale with their support.
binoculars will help...I hope to be able to relocate if further seats become available..
we'll see..
Looking forward to the meetups and being in Ireland again!

Thank you Sonichic,
I just spotted that ...

In the meantime I was trying to get attention of any Forum member who just might be

purchasing tickets way back at the venue and maybe help them obtain seats nearer the stage.
We are in BlockA, thanks to Jarrako .

Yes, for me too, this morning was so stressful; couldn't sleep, up early, link didn't appear for ages, lost tickets in row D, then row M (unable to verify), then offered Block Z (??) or similar, ...I was shaking, I was crying...BUT eventually securred tickets in row M, block A. Could have been better, could have been worse, but all that matters is I'LL BE THERE! :D :D
And, I'm so looking forward to meeting those of you who I feel I already know by name.
I CAN'T WAIT......

Great quote! Gonna use that as my Facebook status tomorrow! ( My status today is celebrating the fact that I have my tickets for Leonard ;-) )
