Meteorologically it's impossible to give an even half accurate forecast at this remove from the 13-15th.
That forecast you provide the link to may prove correct but it'll be a matter of luck not accurate forecasting.
Five day forecasts are the best that can be managed and even they are often wide of the mark.
So cheer up - or not!

10 day weather forecast can be found here.....

http://www.weather.com/outlook/travel/b ... arch_10day

If you scroll down the page you will find that the lucky ones are those going on the Sunday.

I don't have any sympathy with anyone who is foolish enough to book for an open air concert in DUBLIN.

Did you know that Dubliners have 157 words for rain.

As mister Dylan said 'and it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall'

Fans going to Manchester will be pleased to note that the Opera House has a roof.

Oh Ken
You are such a grump!! :roll:
The weather will be incidental.
Are there really 157 words for Irish rain?
I'm sure each is inimitably expressive, there still being a discerning appreciation for Nature's gifts in this lovely green land. :)

I'm telling you and from the horse's mouth (as William would say) no meteorologist worth her/his salt will make a prediction beyond five days for Irish weather. We're an island. In an ocean. On the edge of a continent. Who knows what it'll be doing in an hour?
Anyway, the long black taxi could arrive for any of us in the meantime - "Happy the corpse the rain falls on."
With that charming thought I'll go back to weeding the carrots :razz:

There's one piece of good news for you rain lovers. I've just read on Christy Moore's latest blog that he will be attending one of the Dublin shows. So at least you will be in good company on that wind swept, rain soaked muddy field.

Wouldn't it be whizz if Leonard invited Christy up on stage and they both sang a couple of the auld songs especially for that silly old English fecker William.

Perhaps a few choruses of .....

would liven the the damp evening......one of the few rebel songs that you can dance along to.

Jarkko tells me that by the time the tour reaches sunny Dublin the merchandise stall will definitely have a Leonard Cohen umberella available.
