Alas, I have to pass Ireland but at least a lot of members will be very very happy. That "more coming" is promising :) For now I cherish my four tix. *cuddlestickets* Thanks for staying up late :)

I never really believed this would happen, not just coming to Ireland again, but coming here to Sligo. Roll on July 31st.

Jarkko,

When you say "this is the last of this set", do you mean the last within the 27th July - 14 August time frame, or could (for instance) a concert in Liverpool or London suddenly appear on (say) August 2nd? If not, am I right in thinking that there could still be concerts somewhere in the second half of August?

All good things, John E

Hi,
Just to whet the appetite:

In Memory of Eva Gore-Booth and Con Markiewicz

The light of evening, Lissadell,
Great windows open to the south,
Two girls in silk kimonos, both
Beautiful, one a gazelle.
But a raving autumn shears
Blossom from the summer's wreath;
The older is condemned to death,
Pardoned, drags out lonely years
Conspiring among the ignorant.
I know not what the younger dreams —
Some vague Utopia — and she seems,
When withered old and skeleton-gaunt,
An image of such politics.
Many a time I think to seek
One or the other out and speak
Of that old Georgian mansion,
mix pictures of the mind, recall
That table and the talk of youth,
Two girls in silk kimonos, both
Beautiful, one a gazelle.

Dear shadows, now you know it all,
All the folly of a fight
With a common wrong or right.
The innocent and the beautiful.
Have no enemy but time;
Arise and bid me strike a match
And strike another till time catch;
Should the conflagration climb,
Run till all the sages know.
We the great gazebo built,
They convicted us of guilt;
Bid me strike a match and blow.

W. B. Yeats


In the words of the great American poet,Fred Flinstone:
ya ba da ba doooooooooooooooooooooo

All the best,
Merton

Onwards and upwards Jarkko

Just got in and found this brilliant news ! :D :lol: :D Thank you so much Jarkko, and IrishMar and anyone else who "gently persuaded " Leonard and his team to return to Ireland, starting as far back as last November. Thanks too to Vanvliet who was the first to mention the Sligo concerts on the forum, and to Merton for the poem; it was probably Yeats and his "two girls in silk kimonos" who swung it in the end !

John,
Don't tease a fellow Cohen fan! :roll:
You were once a first time poster too, remember... I'm sure he'll work it out once he reads the FIRST MESSAGE of this thread... ;-)
