Budget day – C’mon Everybody!

From the ‘Self Aid’ gig in 1986. For those of us too young to remember Self Aid, here’s the Wikipedia story:

“Self Aid was a benefit concert held in DublinIreland on 17 May 1986. The purpose of the concert was to highlight the chronic unemployment problem in Ireland at the time, with nearly 250,000 people unemployed. The 14 hour concert was the largest that had ever been staged in Ireland.”

One thought on “Budget day – C’mon Everybody!”

  1. It was a great concert though as a self absorbed 16 year old, I was more interested in seeing my favourite bands live than in any message. Hard to believe its almost 24 years old, so much and yet so little has changed.
