I was just looking at your photos there from the previous trip: On the second page there is a photo tagged as "Galway Docks" but no, this is the Claddagh area of Galway where I grew up.

Kilmainham Gaol featured on the "A Celebration" video
Carrigogunnell Castle and Moydrum Castle featured on the rear and front of the Unforgettable Fire album. But not easy to see unless you are driving. Die hard fans have scrawled graffiti on the walls. lol
"I realised that you can't be a passive pacifist, you must be an aggressive pacifist. I had to make a strong statement about what was happening, and 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' is that statement."

Bono is almost always seen wearing sunglasses because of an allergy to salicyclates and adverse reaction to light.
