The Full Irish!
A playlist from Bono.
While in lockdown, Bono's been tuning in to some of the inspirational Irish musicians who've been the soundtrack to his life.
Earlier today he told Ryan Tubridy on RTÉ Radio 1 what he’s been up to - ‘I’m reading… writing… I’m making lists…’ including his favourite Irish songs from over the years, telling Ryan “You can have it if you want… everything from the Fontaines, the great Shane McGowan… Van Morrison… Thin Lizzy…’.
He also talked about the band’s efforts to support the work of the Irish government in securing personal protective equipment for health workers in the fight against Covid-19.
'They are the people we went to work for,' he explained, paying tribute to frontline health workers. 'I've seen those looks before, but never at home in Ireland. It's a different level of courage.'
