When I was walking from Dalkey to Killiney I turned around a corner and suddenly there they were: 30 Italian tourists with a guitar singing "With or Without You".
I realised that it was Bono's house I was passing by. They were sitting in front of his gate waiting for him to come out. The only stuff that was out though was his rubbish ....
Dalkey is home for many celebrities. Apart from the U2 lads there's also the houses of Eddie Irvine, Lisa Stansfield, Van Morrison etc etc here. Never met anybody though but I know people who did (and didn't even say Hello ;)
In a small park on the coast near Dalkey can be found a plaque to John Dowland, the elizabethan composer who was supposedly born in Dalkey.
