Live Register Aid


Wherin literally dozens of McJobs are ‘pledged’ live on RTE during a 12-hour rock concert.

It gave the Irish economy what Live Aid gave to Africa.

Sweet f**k all. A sense of Hope.

And a bountiful line-up of Irish acts including the last ‘last’ performance by the Boomtown Rats.

Good(ish) times.

    These days it seems like its back to “Banana Republic, Septic Isle, Screaming in the Suffering sea”…

    I seem to remember Chris de Burgh, after getting free nationwide publicity, going in from of the cameras and pledging something like £50 to the fund. It mightn’t even have been as much as that.
