Shortly after 9:00am this morning a helicopter carrying world renowned rock band, U2 with all four members (Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen and Adam Clayton) on board, touched down in our club grounds for a brief visit to the town. Following their engagements in Dungarvan, the lads returned to the field before departing for Dublin at around 11:30am. All four were very complimentary of our grounds, posed for photographs and signed autographs. They also graciously signed a hurley for the club to mark the momentous occasion.
