Sleeve Notes

Few events in Irish life could draw together so many diverse aspects of the country's society and culture as the LATE LATE SHOW did with its special 25th birthday tribute to the Dubliners, broadcast in March 1987.

On the LATE LATE SHOW that night, acknowledging their debt to perhaps the most influential group in the history of Irish Folk Music, were a wide range of musicians and performers including Christy Moore, The Fureys and Davey Arthur, Jim McCann, The Pogues, Stocktons Wing and U2.

This videocassette includes the highlights of that memorable LATE LATE SHOW of music and crack including the final rousing version of "The Auld Triangle."
