OTHER NOTES
Ronnie Drew was a member of the Dubliners, a traditional Irish music group.  When it came time to record his own solo album, he broke from the more traditional Irish music, and recorded an album of new songs.  One of these songs was "Drinkin' in the Day" written by Bono and Simon Carmody.

Carmody was a member of the "Village", a group of kids in Dublin who hung out together throughout their teens.  Bono was also a member of the Village, as was his often cohort, Gavin Friday.  Carmody was part of the band The Golden Horde, which recorded a single for U2's label, Mother Records in the mid-80s.
