'Glug, glug, glug...' Listen to Bono doing Samuel Beckett at last night's Dublin Castle launch of the Beckett Centenary Festival.

On April 13th 1906 one of Ireland's greatest writers Samuel Beckett was born. Last night Michael Colgan, Director of the Gate Theatre and the Chairman of the Beckett Centenary Committee, invited Bono to perform a pastiche of the legendary Nobel Laureate for the launch.
