We were so lucky to be able to go and attend both nights. 
We met some great CW fans and shared some special times together. Both at the shows (in line) and at the various local meeting places (pubs).
When the ladies came out the first night, I had tears rolling down my cheek.  A kid on Christmas morning, only more.  It seems they bring out the kid in me. 
To walk up to the venue and hear that they had rehearsed earlier that morning was cool, but when Lisa and Chloë drove by followed by Máiréad then Lynn and Alex.....  was this a dream?  Lisa and Chloë waving as they went by.

 Helen and Amy.

To get something for lunch and eating outside listening to the girls practicing.......  I had to excuse myself to go back and watch.
Standing in the rain waiting ( for  hours?) and hoping the gates would open, listening to the stories of past concerts and all things CW.
Meeting fellow forum members all hoping for the rain to stop and the concert to begin.
The rain..... 
The show......
The new dresses.  Which my wife says are the best yet.  Not as fancy as ANJ or IOH but so pretty.
The new songs......
The drummers......
Lisa having  her makeup redone on stage.....
Someone in production asking where Máiréad was.... 
Wondering how the first night was already over.
 Scott  with David in background

Spending the next day walking the gardens and hearing the local tourists keep asking "who these wonderful performers were"....

Getting there early the second night and seeing that there was already a line forming.....  Finding our newly made friends in line waiting for us.
The show again..... and the tears flowed even easier the second night.
The power going out and the bugs....
The fun we were having clapping along and the smiles of everyone around us.. (was it cold the second night?) YES !!
The tears at the last song  knowing it was over....
The fireworks...Máiréad coming out and redoing a song....
Wondering how many copies of the DVD we were going to buy when it gets released.

a few more thoughts/memories...
The bagpipe players.
All the amazing lights through out the gardens and the building colors.
Chloë during the power failure saying" I can see you" to the gentleman with the I (heart) Chloë shirt on .
My wife talking to Lisa while I was "busy" taking pictures of the building.

I wasn't quite in the state of mind to do things (anything) when Songs from the Heart was recorded. I don't think we'll ever see something quite like that again, but if they do a show like that now at a spectacular outdoor venue, I think I'd have to find a way to go, no matter what.

This is a repost from my original on old forum.....
We had an incredible time there.
I don't think we will see anything on this scale again.

The exception could be a Reunion show, but chances are getting slim.

Hard to believe that it has been 10 years  It was such a pleasure to watch the DVD with friends that we met at the show in Ireland.
We have traveled to many shows to meet up with the Sidepockets and have shared some special shows.
