Jim Carroll (Irish Times) wrote in his blog earlier to-day...

His Mozness will be celebrating his 50th birthday next year with four Irish shows. He plays Killarney’s INEC (April 28), Galway’s Leisureland (April 29), Omagh’s Leisure Centre (May 1) and Belfast’s Waterfront (May 2). Tickets go on sale on Friday, ranging in price from £33 for the shows up north to €54.80 for the shows down south.

Welcome to the rip off republic. The Belfast gig is priced at £33 which equates to about €38. No wonder people from here are heading north in droves to do their shopping. Still, good news about the gigs though.

Killarney's chock full of hotels of all grades. The Gleneagles is convenient, but I wouldn't panic if I couldn't get a room there - there'll be plenty more rooms, and there's plenty of hotels and B/B's within walking distance of the venue. Make sure and take a walk down by the lakes, or rent a bike and go for a spin around by Muckross etc. Its worth it for the views. The weather should be nice in May.

And even better I spotted this when looking through the INEC website:

Don't know which I'm looking forward to more

Me and a colleague were travelling back from Longford. We stopped at Hammills (on the Mullingar by-pass). John went up and ordered and got a stew and roll - being Veggie, I was told my veggie stir-fry would take a while, so I went up and got a bread roll from the display cabinet. Back at the table, the bread roll was a bit tough, but I cut in and began to eat. I saw the waitresses laugh, then they came over with a pile of tissues. "Sir, you really don't want to eat that", they said. "Why not?" says I - "because it's a display bread roll made of plaster" says they.

In mitigation - I was very hungry.

A year later, I went back, and back at the same place...

"Excuse me sir, weren't you here last year asking for a vegetarian meal?"

"Indeed I was"

<pile of laughing waitresses>

These Irish dates are brilliant. I'd reckon he's gonna announce a single date at the new O2 arena. Leisureland looks like a good venue, small and intimate, The Smiths played there in 1984 long before my time :)

If you book a room at the INEC you usually get a discount for the shows like, er, er... Riverdance. :o (I saw it for free twice and got a commission for bringing people to the show) ...So maybe Spongebob too? :D
Shame none of that works for Morrissey shows!

It's a lovely area. Beautiful oak forest, lakes...Don't bother visiting Muckross house though anyone, you'll get sick at all the hunt trophies everywhere!:sick:

Ha Ha,Great story you made quite an impression,because it was in the Mullingar region I wonder what did they find stranger? The fact you were trying to eat a bread roll from the display cabinet or that you requested a vegetarian meal.:confused:

Just in case people are thinking of coming over for the Killarney concert there's a small airport in Kerry and the fly to and from London Stanstead,London Luton,Manchester,Dublin,Lorient and Hahn.

Its so hard to believe he is coming to leisureland. Its hard to believe an actual huge musical act is coming to galway city nobody decent comes out west. Its always fucking dublin that gets all the great bands. Still fair play to him for remembering the place. But leisureland does not look like the place to host morrissey . It looks like a community centre beside a swimming pool across from a beach. Its tiny inside, and was home to many teenage discos and science fairs. I can't imagine the same room housed the smiths once upon a time. Punky do you have any photos of the gig back in 84, what was it like?

Thanks for the advice.
I think I may have taken a photo of your flag at the Dublin Castle concert in 2004.If I'm not mistaken did Morrissey say "Hello Liverpool" in a scouse accent during the concert when he saw your "there is a light that never goes out" flag?

Ryanair have lots and lots of flights to Shannon. There is a direct bus link with Bus Eireann (Irish Bus) directly outside the arrivals door. Takes about 90 minutes to Galway city. Local bus takes 5 minutes from Eyre Square to Salthill and the gig. Alternatively, Bus Eireann run buses from Killarney to Galway. They cross the broad and majestic Shannon at Tarbert on the ferry and take you into County Clare and on to Galway.

Other things about Galway:

You must go to McDonagh's Fish and Chip Shop in Quay Street
You must have a pint of plain Guinness in Naughtons in Quay Street
Charlie Byrne's Bookshop is also a must.

Hope this helps.

He needs to take breaks now and again, so when he returns it's abit more fresh.

Found on some info tonight, Morrissey has had a row with the promoters over the Dublin venue and has "thrown his dummy out of the pram " by pulling out of the gig altogether as a barganing tool.


Th economics of it mean that if he goes ahead and doesnt play Dublin he probably wont play Galway and Killarney either.

Me and a colleague were travelling back from Longford. We stopped at Hammills (on the Mullingar by-pass). John went up and ordered and got a stew and roll - being Veggie, I was told my veggie stir-fry would take a while, so I went up and got a bread roll from the display cabinet. Back at the table, the bread roll was a bit tough, but I cut in and began to eat. I saw the waitresses laugh, then they came over with a pile of tissues. "Sir, you really don't want to eat that", they said. "Why not?" says I - "because it's a display bread roll made of plaster" says they.

In mitigation - I was very hungry.

A year later, I went back, and back at the same place...

"Excuse me sir, weren't you here last year asking for a vegetarian meal?"

"Indeed I was"

<pile of laughing waitresses>

Joy.

:D Small town syndrome,they don't forget things too easily in Mullingar.You sure you weren't 'Plastered'?

New O2(formerly Point depot) opened last nite,surprised Moz hasn't chosen to play it,he enjoyed the gig here in 2004...

I'm sure there are. Personally I'm not going to the Belfast and Omagh dates due to financial reasons. In saying that though going to the Belfast gig wouldn't have been too pricey, dunno how much a bus eireann return to Belfast from Dub is but I think they now run 24 hours, all you would have to do is pay for concert ticket, sandwich and bus ticket :D assuming of course you are from Dublin or have a contact there who you could crash with. The latter would have been my plan ;)

You going to all 4?

You don't happen to know the capacity of Omagh Leisure Centre, by any chance? :blushing: It's proving to be a bit of an enigma...
