Rolling Stones roll into Ireland for what's likely to be the last time

By Liam Collins

Archbishop Thomas Croke - who lends his name to Dublin's historic GAA stadium - must have been spinning in his grave as Sympathy for the Devil heralded the arrival of the Rolling Stones last night.

The ageing rockers launched the second leg of their No Filter tour in front of a mainly middle-aged, middle-class audience paying between €70 to €181 for the ambience, classic rock and roll and bragging rights to say they probably attended the last ever Irish gig by the Stones.

It might not have been a sell-out, but 74-year-old Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, 76-year-old Charlie Watts, and a relatively youthful Ronnie Wood (70) proved they could still give their fans in Ireland satisfaction.
