This month, 35 years ago, Patrick Coultry, from Cabra, Dublin was stabbed and killed at Ireland’s first ‘Punk Rock Festival’ held at UCD, Belfield, Dublin.
I wasn’t at the gig but I do remember the sensationalist coverage from the NME in the subsequent weeks. I’ve scanned in related pages from NME, July 2nd and 9th.
Apart from the Radiators from Space, the other groups appearing on the night were the Undertones, The Vipers, The Gamblers and Revolver.
More details of this night can be found on the Hidden History of UCD website.

Also really worth checking out is a recent excellent interview with Radiator Phil Chevron over at the Come Here To Me blog.
