Auto Da Fé
Woods, Gay (1948 -)
Irish band Auto Da Fé, photographed backstage during the 'Self Aid' concert in aid of Ireland's unemployed, in the RDS, Dublin, on 17 May 1986. Lead singer Gay Woods is third left; there is a photographer in the foreground. The RTÉ Guide previewed the concert on 16 May 1986.
'Self Aid' was at that time the largest live music event ever staged in Ireland; fourteen hours of music from Irish artists, including Auto Da Fé, was broadcast live by RTÉ Television from the RDS. The public were invited to pledge jobs and money to a job creation fund.
