The irish Ramones singles

On the 24th of September 1978 the Ramones played theit first show in Dublin at the Phibsboro State Cinema. 16 month earlier, in may 1977, the first Ramones record was released in Ireland, Sheena is a punk rocker. 

After that four more singles came out in Ireland. No one was released with a picture sleeve. All the Philips releases came in a irish version of the Phonogram company sleeve, except possibly the first single that I also have seen in a purple Philips-sleeve. The last single, We want the airwaves, came in the UK Sire company sleeve. There is no country printed on the label on that one but you can see the (P) instead a P in a ring, that's typical for irish releases.
