  • Location / Ballybunion, Ireland
  • Venue / Atlantic Hotel
  • Event / A Concert Rehearsal/A Live Rehearsal

The first show by the band in this town.

The first time at this venue.

The venue was located somewhere on Sanhill Road which is next to the Irish Sea in the East of Ballybunion.

Ballybunion is a coastal town and resort in County Kerry and 172 miles South West of Dublin on the west coast of Ireland.

The venue hosted concerts during the 80s although it's unclear when it was first opened.

It was sold to a property company in 2000 and then demolished.

Rick played the first five songs on his own.

Jeff Rich arrived late during the sixth song and accompanied Rick for the rest of the show.

Afterwards it was decided Rick would play on his own at the next show (Waterford) and has done so ever since.
