Dublin U2 museum reportedly in the works

Although the second floor of The Little Museum of Dublin contains a permanent exhibit dedicated to U2, the humble shrine seems a wee bit small for one of Ireland’s and indeed the world’s biggest bands. But after 15 years of foiled plans and dead ends, it appears that the museum is finally moving forward, although the planning application awaits approval according to the Irish Times

Reportedly, the four story museum will go up near the studio where the band recorded some of their most famous music in Dublin’s Docklands area. Plans for the museum that have already been drawn up show the building set to house U2’s archive and artifacts is a cantilevered building jutting out over the River Liffey. As the Irish Times reported, the planning application could see approval within a few days.
