We never would have said that a four-storey U2 museum was something that we needed in our lives, but that’s exactly what the band were hoping to introduce to the city.

In June last year they revealed plans to demolish their recording studio at Hanover Quay and build the museum in its place.

Unfortunately for Bono and co, Dublin City Council have now blocked their proposed plans for a U2 visitor centre in the docklands.

"Serious concerns” were raised about the building, which would have contained a replica of the demolished recording studio and an exhibition centre with a shop and café.

Dublin City Council voiced “serious concerns" about the height of the proposed building” and gave the band six months to reconsider and then resubmit the plans.
