Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Sligo, July 31 & August 1, 2010

Ah, a week later and we're all remembering! Tipperary Ann, I actually asked some people if you were around, would have liked to meet you! I agree with you on just about everything actually. Garavogue was a disaster..........bad atmosphere, rude, indifferent staff etc. Shenanigan's was much more invi...

Re: Sligo-Help for newbies.

Well I hope you're right about the heatwave, Jeney!
The past month in Achill has been wet and windy. Tends to improve in the evenings tho, so could be fairly okay for Lissadel.
I'd advise wet weather gear, and warm clothing. At least midges are keeping a low profile!

Has anyone figured when voting closes on this?
I had been voting diligently :lol: :lol: :lol: until I started getting a message to the effect that this site was slowing my computer. Anyone else get it? Planted virus?????? Me being paranoid??

Re: Sligo-Help for newbies.

Well I'm here on the east coast of the country and the sun is shinning. I've popped "Leonard Cohen Live in London 2008" DVD in and i'm listening to him Growl with his Angels, Sharon and the sublime Webb Sisters in the backround. His narration is similar to Kilmainham and so it floods my head with m...

Re: Sligo-Help for newbies.

Mike, Sligo is a relatievly small town, so I can't see people getting lost! :) You're doing a great job trying to organise meet ups and transport etc. I just hope things don't get too fragmented, ie more than one meet up venue etc. Hope you're not stressing yourself too much, it will all be great on...

Re: The Greatest Lyricist Ever voting includes Leonard Cohen

Think it's best if you give all the others a 1 =Rubbish, then give Leonard a 10.
Just my interpretation of how it works.

Re: Go Sligo Go....

Frances, Mike, you're playing a blinder! Thanks so much for your efforts. For the benefit of anyone who doesn't check the "News" section (perish the thought!), there's a vote in NME for the world's best lyricist. Of course we all know who that is, but now is your chance to vote..........often! :) Th...

Re: Songs you would like to hear in the World Tour 2010

Ahhhhhhhhh come on folks, "go no more a rovin" and the "sally gardens"????????????? This is Leonard Cohen we're going to see, not Shane McGowan. Much as I love Shane, there is a difference! Most of you know by now that I'm a huge "Marianne" fan. Everything else will be welcome, even the midges! Anne...

Re: How many tickets are there for Lissadell House?

Real Alan is correct to point this out. Please take it seriously! There are nasty insects including midges, mosquitos and horse flies not just in the West of Ireland. They are capable of transmitting disease. Take it from one who has suffered from one. I don't really care if the Tourist Board is off...
