Slane gig is possible -- Lord Henry

LORD Henry Mountcharles hopes there may yet be a concert at Slane Castle this year, writes Elaine Keogh.

Details of any potential gig would normally have been announced by this stage but the castle owner confirmed yesterday that he has kept "one date open" for one particular act. It is believed that the date is Saturday, August 25.

"I am still holding one date and there might be a show -- but I can't hold the date much longer," said Lord Henry.

He added: "I am extremely careful about choosing a headline act. Until I am convinced I have made the right choice I will never confirm a show.

"But time is running out and I will be making an announcement in the very near future."
