Heading to Croke Park for U2's sold-out gig on Saturday? Here's everything you need to know, from weather to stage times.

Despite initial reports of rain, it might just be a Beautiful Day for concert-goers, according to Met Eireann.

Met Eireann forecaster John Eagleton said it "currently it looks as if it will be dry, with warm temperatures of 15 or 16C".

Gates open at 5pm, with no queuing allowed prior to that. Supporting act Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds will take to the stage at 7pm, with U2 to begin at 8:30pm.
