Leonard Cohen To Return To Triumphal 2008 Venue

Hot Press posted the following February 24, 2012:

Leonard Cohen for Dublin
Legendary troubadour set to return to Kilmainham…

Having played two landmark concerts there in 2008, Hot Press has learned that an application has been made for a licence to stage a Leonard Cohen gig again in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham. If green-lighted, which seems a formality, the Canadian legend will play Dublin in either August or September.

Rumors that a 2012 Leonard Cohen concert in Dublin was in the making have been floating through the internet  for the past month, but this is the first indication that official administrative steps may have been taken to make the performance a reality.
