The band and 'U23D' director Catherine Owens were in Dublin tonight for the European premiere at the Dublin International Film Festival.

They were joined by a huge crowd of family and friends - we spotted Danny Lanois, Gavin Friday, Simon Carmody and Barry Devlin.

Arriving just after eight, Edge, Larry, Adam, Bono and Catherine stopped to chat with fans outside the Parnell Cinemax before heading inside to introduce the film... twice. There were so many guests that the film was shown on two screens. Welcomed on stage by Grainne Humphreys, Director of the Irish Film Festival, the band paid tribute to the team who have worked so long on bringing the digital 3D live production together - as well as the Irish public who have supported them over so many years.

In fact Bono wistfully recalled a moment lying on the ground with Catherine Owens on Dublin's O'Connell Street at four in the morning... on his seventeenth birthday.
