Nowlan Park Tips (1)

Nowlan Park

Nowlan Park is the home of Kilkenny's GAA teams. In recent years it has hosted two big concerts - Paul Simon in 2002 and Bob Dylan the previous summer. After living in Kilkenny for 18 years, and never having the chance to see anything like this, it was just my luck that I was in New York for the Dylan gig.
