Tweet of the Day: Was Leonard Cohen really in Coppers last night?

Granted it may have been just a big joke, but rumours abound this morning that Leonard Cohen was in the hallowed Harcourt Street nightspot Copperface Jacks last night.

The 77-year old was performing the third of his four Dublin shows in the Royal Hospital in Kilmainham last night and rumour had it that he finished his visit to Ireland in the manner of many a visitor to these shores, with a visit to Copperface Jacks.

The whispers were started by RTE’s John Kelly on Twitter, who posted the following tweet around midnight.

Kelly allowed Cohen fans dare to dream for a little while and do their damnedest to get over to Coppers as quick as they could, before letting them down with the inevitable revelation of the truth, that Cohen was not in Coppers at all, but in bed. He is 77 after all.

Much and all as it would have been great to see Lenny in Coppers, mingling with guards, nurses and GAA fans doesn’t really seem his style. Either that, or he didn’t leave Flannery's early enough to make it in on time.

Maybe next time Leonard, maybe next time.
