U2 are about to unleash their new album How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. The world’s media are descending on Dublin.

Words Stuart Clark, additional reporting by Niall Stokes.
Paul McGuinness’ house, just outside Annamoe in the Wicklow mountains, on a gorgeous autumnal afternoon in November. Sunday lunch is over and some of the guests have begun to head back to the city. The rest are repairing to the sitting room for a preview of the new album from the biggest rock band in the world.
