Bono and Bob Geldof were among hundreds of famous Irish faces at Dublin Castle last night to greet former President Bill Clinton.



The Irish Independent reports that some of the country's best-known actors, musicians, entertainers and politicians turned out to honour Mr Clinton, with all proceeds from the gala dinner going to the Northern Ireland Fund for Reconciliation.
