I've only ever seen the first picture before in Mojo but this Irish website contacted Jill Furmanovsky who sent four pictures to them. See the posting called "A Little Bit Special" from June 8th 2012. Have these been available before?

A mixed two tone type week for me.....Last Saturday afternoon I was having a drink with Adele and Terry the front girls from The Friday Club......two days ago I realise I can't get back home to the Cork gig I'm supposed to be at.....then I come across these pictures.....

Loved the way Easons (Ireland's equivalent chain to WH Smith) in the background is black and white. I never remember it being anything other than blue and green......it's like they changed Easons and the floor tiles coz they heard who was in town!
