Can Bono save Ireland?

I read of Bono's meeting with Enda Kenny before the holidays. I have no notion what they discussed.

I know that he brought a bottle of Irish whiskey with him to give to our famously teetotal Taoiseach as a present. I'm not sure that taking to the drink just now would be the wisest thing for Enda. What I would like to believe is that the "right-on" rock-guru reminded our leader to remember to hope.

Touchy-feely meet and greet sessions don't usually yield much other than a few photos; but Ireland is taking a serious hiding.
