U2 Enlisted for Irish Tourism Charm Offensive

Posted on Wednesday, April 25 @ 09:34:01 CEST by Macphisto

DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ireland's most famous rock band, U2, have been enlisted by the Irish government to help reassure American tourists the country is safe to visit.

The band, currently touring in the U.S., made a brief statement to fans at a concert in Los Angeles Monday night.

``We are a little surprised that the government has asked us to get involved, but we're happy to dispel any rumors that foot-and-mouth disease has made Ireland unsafe for tourists,'' said lead singer Bono in a message posted on U2's Web site.

``This is a ridiculous misunderstanding. We would like to tell everyone that Ireland is a perfectly safe place for a vacation. All of us in the band live and work there.

``It's a great place for a vacation and we hope everyone will continue to visit.''

Ireland launched a major charm offensive earlier this month in a bid to reassure foreign tourists put off by images from neighboring Britain of blazing pyres heaped with livestock carcasses.
