Bono has recalled former Irish Taoiseach Garret FitzGerald who has died in Dublin.

Mr FitzGerald, 85, served twice as Taoiseach between 1981 and 1987 at the head of Fine Gael/Labour coalition governments.

'The Queensbury rules amongst street fighters... a gentleman.' said Bono. 'He rebranded Ireland with his grace and intellect. I remember feeling very proud that he was our leader. A class act, cut crystal, diamond mine of information, statistics, the detail of peoples lives, that he so cared about. Us.'
