Radio Ham Saved Guns n' Roses Gig

A radio amateur saved the day when Guns n' Roses played Slane in '92 is remembered as the famous American Band took to the stage 25 years later.
On that occasion, just before the famous rockers took to the stage catastrophe struck when the sound system went down.
The blushes of Lord Henry Mountcharles, Axl Rose and his troupe were saved by a genius farmer from Kilmore between Summerhill and Dunboyne.
Noel Doherty [EI4HXB], a two-way radio enthusiast, farmed a 50 acre holding at Kilmore House. When the techies at Slane failed to reboot the silent sound system Noel was sent for and a Garda escort whisked him to Lord Henry's amphitheatre.
With little fuss and maximum efficiency he had everything up and running in minutes.
