Govt Minister says Bob Dylan visit to Nowlan Park should be commemorated

Malcolm Noonan says there should be a plaque erected to mark the occasion of Dylan's gig in 2001 - the singer-songwriter is 80 years old.

A government Minister says there should be a plaque at UPMC Nowlan Park to commemorate the visit of Bob Dylan.

Dylan is celebrating his eightieth birthday today and it’s twenty year this summer since the legend play at the iconic Kilkenny GAA venue.

With more than 125-million albums sold around the world, the musician has established a reputation as one of the greatest lyricists and musicians of all time – even winning a Nobel prize in literature.

Carlow-Kilkenny Green Party Minister Malcolm Noonan is a musician himself and huge Dylan fan.

He’s told KCLR’s The Way It Is that the gig should be marked and remembered.
