The Rolling Stones play one of the biggest concerts ever staged in Ireland.

70,000 fans paid £12 to see The Stones play at Slane Castle, County Meath. In glorious sunshine hundreds of balloons were released into the air as the band open their set with 'Under My Thumb' taken from the album 'Aftermath'. Two days before his 39th birthday, Mick Jagger struts his stuff on stage as Keith Richards, Ron Wood, Billy Wyman and Charlie Watts crank out the tunes. 

Support acts on the day were The J Geils Band, The Chieftains, and George Thorogood and the Destroyers. 

This was the second concert to be held at Slane Castle. In 1981 Thin Lizzy were the first band to headline the venue with support from U2, Hazel O'Connor, Rose Tattoo, Sweet Savage, The Bureau, and Megahype.

This footage was shown as part of an RTÉ News report broadcast on 24 July 1982.
