Hey Connie, I can tell you one better than that. I also saw Planxty that same weekend!

Planxty Ballisodare 1979 ..... now how lucky was that? 

Talk about the right place at the right time! 8-)

Mind you, a lot of folks didn't feel quite so lucky, as loads of tents & gear went missing on the campsite, that year.

Such amazing music.  See where the speed comes from!   And nary a smile on any of their faces while playing...

Amazing, I didn't even know about this band in the 1970's (nor did any of my friends in Ohio)!!! You're very fortunate to have seen them in their heyday. I would've absolutely loved this band as a teenager, as well would some of my friends. I probably would've stuck with my fiddle (because I just didn't want to play classical or bluegrass). It's kind of bittersweet for me that I just recently discovered Irish traditional style and this band; I already bought most of their available CDs ~ the next one will be "After Hours". While you were out enjoying The Bothy Band, I was busy watching the megalithic rock bands 1970's. I sorely wish they'd been more strongly promoted within the states pop culture... and I can't believe you actually saw their last performance!!! Did they ever come to perform in the states during the 1970's?

Connie, I saw them live at Ballisodare 3 years later, in 1979, which as you can see from this link, was their last public performance!
