During December 2013 I received an email from Paula McCann, the Chairperson of the organising committee for the Dublin Event asking would I like to have some photos exhibited at the Event. I was honoured to be asked and to be a small part of what was a wonderful weekend. Photos of the photos at the Event will follow in albums of the actual Event. For now here are the photos that were used. Thank you Paula for having the vision to allow me do this and Albert Noonan for the professional final prints.

While everytime I have met Leonard is precious to me and something I will treasure forever, meeting him in Ireland for me was the most magical of all and to meet him in his comfort zone before the sound checks for the concerts is very special for me. Here follows photos of those magical moments with Leonard and some of his band. I’d made a point of not asking those in the band I’d met in Ghent for photos as they had been more than generous to me there but I did have a few words with many of them in Dublin and will treasure those moments forever too.
