Word (up) has it that music megastar 50 Cent – aka Curtis James Jackson III (no relation to John of Kilrossanty) – may play Waterford this summer.

The RSC, which is owned by the City Council, is earmarked for a massive July gig, with swooner crooner Bruno Mars also rumoured to be lined up.

Whatever about hip hop, the pitch in Kilbarry has seen a fair few hip op’ candidates strut their stuff over the years.
