U2 Croke Park gig a rehearsal for Clare?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Irish Emigrant,

By all accounts the U2 concerts at Croke Park have more than lived up to expectations. Many of the 80,000 fans who filled the stadium on Friday were from around the globe and had travelled here to see the group on home territory.

Saturday's concert was equally successful and the stadium will be packed again tonight.

The Irish Times is of the view that when singer Andrea Corr marries Brett Desmond, son of financier Dermot Desmond, on August 21 the reception will be at the Doonbeg golf resort in Co. Clare and that guests will be entertained by U2. This is based on the fact that members of the golf club have been told that the course and facilities will not be available that day for security reasons.

The U2 link is based on the long-standing friendship between Andrea Corr and Bono and the fact that the band, currently on a concert tour, does not have an engagement that day.
