BOBFEST AND B.P.L.O.

'Come Gather Around People...'

COTTON PICKIN' GREAT MUSIC
.
On a wet Saturday morning bumped into local music impresario John O’Reagen while shopping at Tesco. John has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things musical and is a great man for news of the latest gig and this morning he informed me of two events that I think are worth mention here. The first is a benefit gig for the Alzheimer Association of Ireland which takes place next Saturday evening upstairs at Dolans in Limerick city. This musical outing will include several local bands including the incredibly eclectic The Brad Pitt Light Orchestra, not to be missed. (http://www.dolanspub.com/event.php)
The second event is even more extraordinary, a day in the open air celebrating the music of Bob Dylan in the woods in County Tipperary. This is a free gig with a barb-b-q thrown in and a marquee on stand by just in case the weather turns out as nasty as it is today.( http://www.myspace.com/bobfestireland )~GOSh.~

The Woods of Tipperary, the Woods of Tipperary, which fecken Woods. Its obviously free if you can fecken find it. Tipp is a BIG place and there are lots of fecken woods there. Would that be the Cahir Woods, maybe the Galtee Woods, or the Thurles Woods. We will all be driving around lookin' for the fecken Woods of Tipperary, thinkin' He might show up so He might, thats the kinda thing He just might do, and maybe Bono will be with Him. Might be down be near Clonmel, so it might or or out on the bog near Cashel

I understand the confusion Dominic, just set your SatNav to Toor, County Tipperary and you'll hit it...hopefully

Dominic said...

Is this for real, Toor, never heard of it nor do I have a sat nav and I cannot find it on the map.

Toor exists alright, I am reliably informed it is near the village of Rearcross which is about 8 miles on the Clare Glens side of Newport. As proof Dominic and especially for you I will post a photo of Toor...
