Dunshaughlin College


Warrenstown College is an agricultural college, approx 25 miles from Dublin in the Irish countryside (in the middle of nowhere).

Motörhead couldn’t get a venue to play in, in Dublin as at the time they were deemed “undesirable” as were their fans, so they ended up in this unusual venue (I’m not aware of any other bands ever playing there).

The show was due to start at 8.00pm but the band was travelling over from the UK on the ferry from Holyhead on the same day as the gig. The ferry was delayed due to bad weather so the band didn’t get to the venue until around 11.00pm. Everyone waited and the show went on late.
Great gig.
