Jd
if you can locate "Tir n-Og" on your map, you will have no problem finding Sligo and Lissadell a few miles east from there!!!! :lol:

Thank you Tipperary Ann...when we meet
I intend to sing you a "Tipperary" song you never heard before....
in fact if you are able to join in, you get a free drink or two !. ;-)
Rooms are at Markree Castle Hotel Sligo for 150 pp includes Breakfast +1 Dinner.
It is in the Cooper family for over 300 years.... 8) .
Yeats Tavern is suggested as Meet-up point or
the Radisson Blu Hotel has also been suggested...but a venue in town might be best bet ... :D
Just bought some extra seed for "The-Bird-on-The-Wire"..... :idea:

Does anyone know how much the tickets will be? I'm currently on a budget but I will go without food for any specified length of time so that I can afford it.....!!

I expect to be in Sligo next week , will have a look around for suitable venue for meet-up


Yeats Tavern might be a good place to meet - not too far from Lisadell

Brilliant ! It's a beautiful place.
Thanks to everyone who helped this to happen.
Maarten..it will be so cool if you do nametags for us, my Barcelona tag and lanyard hang in pride of place in my office. Great memories of the few days in your city.
(Back ther for a week in mid-May).
Booked Clarion hotel, but Radisson Blu seems to be full already. Fans are quick off the mark.
Anyone need a ticket for Zagreb ( very near the front) ???

Roll on summertime. :D :D :D

Hey Ken...you can do it! I was up at 230am last Thursday for the 3am presale for Salzburg, and plan on being online at 4am on Thursday for Ireland! Just struggle out of bed, buy the ticket, and then go back to sleep ;-) . See you in Sligo! :D

I am not au fait with the pre-sale concept. Could somebody please explain how it works. Does being a 'board member' here mean I can book through this site?

Funnily enough I am typesetting a book right now which is a walking guide entitled Yeats and Sligo. It is full of interesting Yeats family history, Lisadelliana and silk kimonos.
