All is quiet(ish), a week after New Year's Day.

The Night U2 were the bomb at Galway's Claddagh Hall.

Link takes you straight to a .pdf of an article from my local paper, the Galway Advertiser, about U2's visit to our fair city a quarter century ago. Warning: link contains photos of the Edge when he had... a little bit more on top.

Here's an eyewitness account of the same event by a bright-eyed young thing who happened to be playing in the support band. (Well, he was young in 1979 anyway.)
