"Guggi, Bono and the Brethren"

David Williamson cites a weekend milestone in the life of a Dublin landmark and ferrets out its truly arcane U2 historical connection.

[Edit: OK, I learned something here. Readers may recognize this Bono quote which is in rotation on @U2: "While I do think religion is often an obstacle to God, I do also find comfort in it on occasions -- whether it's a mass around the corner from where we live, or a Protestant Gospel Hall I might find on the road." Whenever this quote came up, I would glance at it and think "'Gospel Hall'?? Who says 'Gospel Hall'??" I'm embarrassed not to have known that it's the Brethren who say "Gospel Hall", and for good reasons. ]
