@foley26

Don´t feel teased ;-) There will be a presale for forum members on 22nd of April. A link will appear in the first post of this thread and you just follow the link and the instructions. In the meantime, you carefully read all posts from Jarkko and nothing can go wrong ...

Congratulations on your concert, lucky, lucky, Ireland. Well, not lucky really, you have earned a special place in Leonard's heart I think.

Just keeping everything crossed that he does find a little space to come over here though I feel almost greedy in hoping because of the many people who haven't been lucky enough to have him visit. But with five concerts in France, maybe it is not hopeless to hang on to the dream...

I tried to post a message of thanks to Jarkko here when it was announced, but it didn't deliver. Could be I was so excited it went somewhere else!
Anyway, thank you so much Jarkko!
The suspense has been killing, and seriously began to wonder about the infamous Bird on a Wire from Carlow!!
So Maarten, you can add me and my husband to your list! Been fans for ..........over forty years. Think that qualifies us as Cohenites??
Yeahhhhhhhhh, roll on Sligo!
Let's hope for our UK friends now.

Hi,
About my previous post with all the expected names in it: I was merely joking around with all the names I knew from the Barcelona meetup (and Ros)! I don't know if they will all be there in Sligo, but I'm sure most of them will, along with a long list of UK Cohenites of course. It's still a long time before the Sligo concert, so I'm sure we'll hear from the group of Irish Cohenites in time about meetup plans etc... If you need any help for nametags, let me kow! However, I've made nametags for Barcelona, Las Vegas and San José before, perhaps it's time to try out something new (although I don't know what exactly). But it's wouldn't be any problem to make lanyards & nametags if you want.

Regards,
Maarten, (over)exicted

Hi Maartan, you wont see me in Sligo :( ... money is tight at the moment and if there was a way I could go, I would but with Kracow the following week, I am not so sad about it.
Looking forward to all the Sligo stories over a few beers in the sunshine in Poland

By the way Maarten, I see you called me Cindrella instead of Tinderella :) ... so who knows, maybe some magic will happen and I will go to the Ball afterall :)

Is this concert definately going ahead because there was an article in the Sligo Champian newspaper in March saying the shows were called off.

How wonderful for all our Irish fans and friends :D :D :D If another concert does not materialize in that area, here's hoping that this concert will somehow lessen the feelings of sadness for all forum members and friends from England, Wales, and Scotland and that you will be able to attend this one.

Maarten, you know the phrase, "If it ain't broken........."? Your nametags are the best!

One more phrase, for you Tinds, "Where there's a will......" There's just gotta be some way Bernie!!

Jarkko,
Apologies if you have answered this query already, but is will there be a limit on the number of tickets each forum member may purchase in the pre sale.?

Tinders, I hope whatever hinders your attendance, will turn to cinders. :D

Carlowmike ,if the bird's :D weather forecast is as accurate as the concert prediction, it's looking good. :D ....

And finally a special thanks to ace reporter Forsyth of The Irish IndeKENdent for being one of the 1st to bring us the good news. :D

I've just booked my accomodation for the night before and the night of the gig at this place http://www.lissadellfarmhouse.com/index.php

Ideal location and an absolute bargain at €38 per person per night! Bet they will regret that price!
