Our last ever gig was there, well we thought at the time it was our last ever gig.

“Charles O’Connor is still looking for the fiddle he threw out into the crowd.”Horslips1Barry Devlin from the band added: “We finished in 1980 simply because we were knackered. We’d done 10 studio albums and two live ones in just under eight years and we’d played about 1700 gigs.

“We are looking forward to getting back into the Ulster Hall again and I still have the programme from the 1967 Queen’s Festival. So I’m delighted to be linking up with it again through City Of Rhythms Promotions.”
