Bono's university?
« on: June 23, 2016, 08:45:19 AM »
I know I've read that Bono went to university for a couple weeks and then got kicked out because he hadn't passed his Irish language course or exam or something at Mount Tenple. I'm trying to figure out where he went, but can't find it. Could anybody help me with that please? Thanks.

Trinity College, Dublin. He never bothered to learn Irish (Gaelic) properly, and that was a requirement, so he had to leave.

He talks about it in "U2 by U2," which is a really fun book to read.
