Notes: 

U2's only Irish date during 1981, supporting Thin Lizzy at Slane Castle in County Meath just outside of Dublin.
U2 debut 6 tracks from the forthcoming album October.
Bono and the crowd sing "Happy Birthday" for Edge's girlfriend Aislinn.


A bit of cleanup was needed with this 3rd gen audio cassette recording. 
Cool Edit Pro was used to normalize the audio to 98% and remove some of the tape hiss without affecting the music.

There is a slight edit 2:21 into Out of Control and another 1:37 into Fire.
