Bono: Consider me IDA staff

BONO asked that the IDA "consider him as part of their staff", new documents released under a Freedom of Information request reveal.

The U2 frontman has had regular communications with the agency tasked with attracting foreign investment after he revealed last month he was working with the IDA.

On one occasion he said he wanted to give something back to the country that "has been so good to us and that we love". Another time he wrote: "Please consider me one of your staff as you are doing an incredible job re-floating the country."
