Our visit to Ireland was actually a trip to see Bruce Springsteen at Croke Park on May 27th. Walking around a warm, hospitable Dublin, visiting the Icon Factory again – do got there if you’re ever in Dublin, it’s magic and they need your support – we came across possibly the best busker we’ve ever heard … Jacob Koopman. Yes, he’s been on X-Factor. His voice is magic, listen and watch to his version of Chasing Cars. It really put us in the mood for the real thing – our visit to Croke Park and The Boss. A three and a half hour full-on, non-stop, adrenalin-fuelled, mind-blowing performance from Bruce Springsteen.

We’ve seen him a few times but this was by far the best concert we’d attended – and the weather was perfect. Our seats were as good as you could get, almost in “the pit” without the discomfort for us oldies of standing for 4+ hours. What else can I say … it was just a magic occasion, and now I’ve got the download of the audio of the concert so I can relive it over and over again.

A few more shots of the trip (mainly the concert) can be seen here.

I'd love to get your feedback ...
