I can't see them.


Hi maybe

Not sure why but It won't let me play them through the Forum either (shows something about 'embedding not allowed'. If you click on the YouTube logo on the bottom right of the videoclip screen, it should bring you into it on YouTube - that works for me (I tested as soon as I added the link to the Forum to ensure it worked ok).

Hope it works for you - if not I could send them to you via email/pm ? (though I think the PM link would be the same).

By the way, I loved your recent uploads - some cool shots!

A.

You're welcome, Heather.

I was sitting in the 2nd row, behind you and a little to your left - so near enough!

Aileen


I was on the other side on Sat evening so it is wonderful to see it so close. Thank you Aileen.

Thanks for all the wonderful Reports and vids....it sounds like both concerts at Kilruddery House were something special.

Aasi...I especially liked your vid of ETILAY and Hallelujah. :)

While it was lovely to see Urs naming fans from the crowd...especially you Heather...I mean Reverend. :) I would have loved to have seen your face at that moment...you must have been beaming with happiness! xx

For me it was Hallelujah that I thought was very sweet... the guys holding their bouquet of flowers looked very beautiful. :) To the lady who gave them out...thank you...it was perfect timing! xx

To LOVE....pure and chaste from afar!! xxxx

Killruddery Diary August 20th

A long leisurely breakfast with some friends were leaving today....Maria and Boo, Anne and Pat, Tracy. Posted Image Maria was going to book her taxi so Moe went with her. I said goodbye to Anne and Pat and then went to play on Tracy's i-pad and have a chat. It was as well Moe went with Maria as they had problems getting a wheelchair-friendly taxi. It all worked out well in the end and Maria said the taxi-driver was friendly and helpful, just as we found with all the Irish we came across. He even pushed Maria to check in!

Moe and I then caught the service bus into Bray to meet with Kay. Moe was feeling very nostalgic as she saw places that reminded her of her childhood visits. The sun was shining and we were at the sea-side...all was looking good.

When we left the bus stop we saw a large advert for Il Divo Posted Image

It took quite some time to catch it on Il Divo before it moved onto the next ad!

Then we walked along the Promenade in the direction of the Esplanade.

Moe with Bray Head in the background.

We saw some of our Diva friends walking in the opposite direction and had a chat..

The sun seemed to be disappearing, the wind was freshening and it looked like rain! I could feel the rain starting so decided to put on my rain-cape. Oh what a video that would have made!! The wind got under it and lifted it...I thought I was going to be Mary Poppins and take off. Moe battled with it to fasten the studs under the arm and we made it across to the Esplanade.

Kay was not in her room when we arrived so we ordered a cuppa and relaxed. We had told them on reception we would wait in the Lounge and it wasn't long before Kay arrived and joined us. Another group of Divas came in and sat at the table next to us....this is when Alex introduced herself! Isn't it great to see people face to face that you have been in contact with on the Forum? Kay went off to get ready for the show. Moe and I decided to eat here at the Esplanade and then Kay could dine at the Ramada while we got ready. ....sorted We were just about to get a taxi when we saw Andreja ...my Diva buddy from the Klilrudderry Gates the day before. Andreja and I seem to meet at the barricades as she is usually in prime position with her camera! She decided to travel with us to the Ramada in the taxi.

None of us were going to the Orangery that night so we didn't have to leave as early. We decided to take photos in front of the large Poster Advert. Quite a crowd of us were there taking photos of one another.

Then we walked down the woodland path seeing many fellow divas en-route. We had time to walk around and chat to our Diva friends. I was seated on the opposite side than the previous evening and I had no Diva friends sitting next to me but plenty on the rows behind. The seats in front of me were empty at that point..later I was to find Val and Heather would be sitting there. I went with Moe to find that they had created another walkway between the first rows and the ones behind, which meant that Moe was further back than the previous night...not a Happy Bunny.

Killruddery Diary August 20th The Concert


I had seen the lovely Japanese Divas in their kimonos having photos taken at the front so went down to take a photo. Elaine and Adriana wanted me to join them. I felt so under-dressed next to these beautiful Divas !


Posted Image

I eventually sat down as the concert was about to start. Escala Were dressed in Black tonight....

Izzy

During the interval I was standing at the side of the stage chatting to Lesley when we noticed a big people carrier arrive at the back but it pulled along too far for us to see if the Divos got out. However watching the changing colours playing on the House as dusk fell was fantastic.

David tweeted his view of the House

Killruddery Diary August 20th The Concert (cont)

Well we thought the guys were happy the previous evening...tonight they were really on a high. Teasng Carlos about being single was no longer the focus of the jokes...but jokes there were a-plenty....and didn't we enjoy it? public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif

One of Two of the highlights of the night was when Urs noticed Kaz and Collean, who despite the cold evening were wearing their Uber T shirts. I was too far away to take a photo when they stood to take their bow but here is one of them with Adriana before the show started....

.....and I was able to capture them later at the Ramada and with skilful editing by a Diva friend Urs was still with them.......

Killruddery Diary August 20th The Concert (cont)


Another memorable event took place when Seb put Urs on the spot just before ETILAY. Urs is the computer according to Seb and never forgets, especially the names and details of fans. Urs was shading his eyes to look out it the audience........

Posted Image


........he had no problem in identifying several Ubers including 'The REVEREND' Heather.


Posted Image

Seb was making the point that without we Divas it would not be the same for them. They were always pleased to see us and even knew some of us who had been supporting them for some time. The merriment continued through ETILAY when David picked up flowers thrown onto the stage and passed them to Carlos who then passed them to Urs...just in time for Urs to sing 'Please put out the light' to him

Killruddery Diary August 20th The end of the Concert

All too soon the concert drew to a close.


Posted Image
...after saying goodbye to many Divas we headed back down the woodland path which seemed more brightly lit than the night before?


Posted Image

Back at the Ramada the party carried on ..Moe and I left at about 3am. By the looks of the photos coming from the Divo's Hotel they were have a 'rocking ' good time also!

Posted Image

Ah well the party's over ...Time to hang up the Divo suits until the next time...also for us to go away and save up for the 2012 Tour!!
Thank you Carlos, David, Sebastien and Urs for two wonderful nights with you and thank you to all my Diva friends from all around the world who made my time in Ireland so very special. Here's to the next time!

We were exhausted the next morning waiting to leave and I'll leave you with Jan in the lounge at the Ramada...dreaming sweet Divo dreams.
