I've seen Bono & Larry in Dublin (last week)

last week I went with a friend to Dublin.
Some of you probably have already read that I have talked with Sam O'Sullivan last week.
But he isn't the only one I've seen in Dublin... (but the only one I've spoken too)
On the first day that we were in Dublin we wanted already take a look at the Hanover Quay studio. We were there only 5 minutes and I saw a car descending and I said for the joke against my girlfriend: look there comes a chique car! and my friend answered "it is Larry""it's Larry! And my reaction was: uh? you are right, omg it's Larry!" We stood of course there entirely in bump and stood nailed to the ground. In the meantime the poort opened and Larry drove into the garage, and for we knew it the poort was already closed without having the change to do someting (we haven't even waived at him).
And we have waited 2 hours for Larry and are then left because it had no sense to still remain there, who know how long he stayed there (it was very cold and already dark) during the two hours that we have been there, we have seen many people going in and out the studio...
Suddenly the door opened once and asked that man or we were fans and we have a bit talked to that man. But it was a bit strange because he said that U2 would not come that weak to the studio but I said too him that we had seen Larry arriving, on which te man answered: Oh yes Larry is here for the moment...(very strange if you ask me)

And there arrived a young man wearing a short trousers (in the winter) on which that man said that he is the trainer (also complete bizar). Suddenly a bunch of people came outside and said a woman to us that we were waisting our time because it had no sense that we stayed there. And I asked her that she couldn't ask Larry to come out for a few minutes, on which she said:'he wouldn't do that'
so that's when we decided to go knock on the door but there was no reaction so we decided to go away...

on another day we went to Killiney (were Bono and the edge lives) it was around the afternoon that we arrived there. therefore decided first to eat something. to go to the city we had to pass by Bono's house and on that moment went his gates open and drove a blue mercedes away, but it was only a driver we had seen in the car. after a few minutes we saw again the mercedes and my friend reconised a daughter of Bono in that car. after dinner we returned to Bono's house and we wanted to read the texts on Bono's gates, but we stood there only 5 seconds and a security guy told us to move away further from the gates. then we wanted to go to the beach of Killiney but sudenly I remembered that we didn't see Edge's house so we went back. on the way back an old car passed us and suddenly the gates of Bono's house were open so I hurried a bit to take a look on the inside of his garden but suddenly the blue mercedes appeared and Bono was in the car!! and we was similing and waved to us!I stood there entirely shocked and thought oh yes I have to wave back!! he looked very good!!! he had the red/oranje shades on!!!
it's a pitty he didn't stopped for us but on the other hand really do not wanna disturb him too much on his house, he needs a bit privacy. But I am glad that I have seen him.
And on the last day of our trip we was Bono's brother Norman in his restaurant Nude!! But we haven't spoken to him because we wouldn't bother him only for the reason he is the brother off...but I have secretly a photograph of him (the man on the left with grey hair)


we also went to Kilmainham goal, Hard rock café, temple bar, Guiness storehouse, Trinity College,... Dublin is such a great city

Dublin is such a small place... Sounds like you had a great time! I'm in Dublin next weekend. Maybe I should have a look at Hanover Quay studios, too.

Hi Glamourgirl,

I am very happy that you had a great time in Dublin, but the man with grey hair on the left of your photo doesn't look to me like Norman but of course, I could be wrong.

Take care,

BlueAingeal

I really think it was him because he was talking to a man about business and he did not had to pay for the water he was drinking. and he was walking all around the place... so it must be Norman...
