Slane Castle looks set to bring live music back with a bang with a double summer concert in 2022.
Castle owner, Lord Henry Mountcharles, is also considering a live-streamed gig later this year to celebrate 40 years of rock at the famous Co Meath venue.
As the pandemic has left the entertainment industry singing the blues since March 2020, Lord Mountcharles said: “This year is dead for a live show, I was holding out hope that something could happen, but it looks nigh on impossible.
“We are looking at a show, and very possibly two, next year.
“I see it returning in the summer of 2022 and I want to come back with a big show.”
Lord Henry, 69, was speaking ahead of a major auction in Kells, Co Meath, next week, co-ordinated by antiques dealer Niall Mullen and which includes antique flags from Beauparc House, his main residence, located close to the castle.
