  1. Back in 1979 U2 were trying to record demos, and doing a lot of live appearances trying to attract attention to gain a record contract. John Fisher and his partner Eoin O'Shea had just started a performance space at the Dandelion Market to try to entice young punks by their stand which sold badges and other paraphernalia by bands that were making it big at the time. Bands had to help repair the stage after playing a gig, a stage constructed of beer crates and chipboard. And U2 would play that stage, a total of eight times in 1979. That's where they said goodbye to Dublin before their first tour of London, and that's where they played when they came back. They first saw printed copies of their EP "Three" at that venue. The performances are part of the U2 legend. Over at U2Songs, John Fisher, one of the guys who set up the Dandelion Market performance venue sat down and answered a few questions about those days. How the venue started, stories of the band, and more.
