Ha'penny for your thoughts
The Ha'penny bridge is just a pretty, River Liffey spanning bridge, right? Wrong. Back in the early 1980s, it was on this legendary Dublin landmark that U2 struck a pose for some early, and now iconic images. If it’s memorabilia you’re after, then look no further than The Hard Rock Café where you’ll find a Trabant car from U2's Zoo TV era, the shades Bono wore in the video for Beautiful Day and handwritten lyrics for their song Please. Not forgetting, of course, the incredible U2 exhibition in the Little Museum of Dublin: it's wee, but it's wonderful.
So there you have it: you can follow U2 all over the world, but there's only one city they call home. How's that for rock and roll?
