Do you remember that little bird on a wire which tweeted something about a return to Ireland in 2010 .....?

Hope springs eternal (and we are just next door!)

If Leonard is suffering from compession, then Thomond Park or the O2 are the perfect decompression chambers!

Please Leonard/Robert, put Ireland on the "summer concerts in Europe" list. I know we are greedy but we love you!

I may not be Irish, but I will quickly adapt! I join in IrishMar's valiant effort to convince Robert, Ed, and Leonard to somehow return to Dublin! The evening would be one to remember for all times!! They love you Leonard! And you would be blown away by the number of non-Irish fans who would invade the island! Perhaps even the 20,000 angels! :D

Yes!

And can I just say, if you're bored of Dublin there is always the Real Capital and the Peoples Republic of Cork...! :D

Could I propose ladydi as the US's next ambassador to Ireland? LC can sing at her inauguration.

Well, jdhayes, don't you come up with some incredible ideas!! :D Sounds great to me...especially the part about Leonard singing at the inauguration! Hmmm, maybe I'd better pass this by the President though.... ;-)

Ambassador or not....I'll be there!

Last night I watched some of the YouTube footage of the Dublin concerts of '09, I can see why Leonard received the Meteor award for the second time.

If possible Leonard, please come back to us and do it all again.
