Adam remembers: 'The exact point of becoming U2 was a talent competition sponsored by Harp Lager in Limerick on Saint Patrick's Day in March 1978.

There was prize money of £500 and a record deal. We had entered as The Hype and we realized that if we won it, then we would be stuck with The Hype. So we had to change the name before the competition.' (From 'U2 by U2')
