I was there!
An awesome day - travelled from Galway to the festival. still remember it all these years later. Have seen U2 about 25 times since from Phoenix Park, to Skydome Toronto to Hawaii USA and have yet to be disappointed. Fair play to you U2 - another great reason I am proud to be Irish!!! God Bless You.
