THE Beatles said Hello, Goodbye to Dublin at their only ever concert in the Republic 50 years ago.
And now, their rocking show will be remembered by a series of lectures in Ireland's oldest university.
Trinity College Dublin has announced a 'Beatles in 12 Movements' series of free talks, starting on Monday.
The series will mark the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' Irish concert – a show in which the Herald played an important part.
The Fab Four were famously whisked to safety from the Adelphi Cinema in an Evening Herald delivery van following the Dublin show in November 1963.
Liam Kelly, a Herald journalist who was in the van at the time, described it as the "rescue Beatle operation".
The first lecture is on the album Please Please Me and has been written by TCD Professor Michael Grenfell.
