Yes indeed, place was half full at best if I remember correctly, good enough atmosphere though. Being the 8th December, the once traditional holy day day in Ireland for country folk to do all their Christmas shopping at once I thought city centre was busy enough that afternoon despite the weather. I remember walking straight up to the venue, not a queue in sight and straight to my seat all in about 2 minutes..... naively I was probably expecting similar size crowd to the RDS in 84.
I didn't venture out until the last minute, on foot and assisted by wind power ... very small crowd, but that just added an air of intimacy. And they played Teo Torriate, much to my surprise and delight :)
