He's Leonard Cohen but not everybody knows

THE husky voice of legendary singer Leonard Cohen may be instantly recognisable to hundreds of thousands of fans, but it appears he can still peacefully stroll down a street.

The singer-songwriter was in Dublin a few days early ahead of playing the O2 tomorrow and on Thursday.

He enjoyed a quiet stop-off at Madigan's Bar in O'Connell Street before strolling down the street with a female companion.

His attire didn't draw any notice as he was dressed in a black trench coat, topped off with a grey hat. The Canadian singer, who will shortly turn 79, has a devoted following here for his concerts.
