Why Bono may end up paying just €517 tax on his lavish €2.5m mansion

BY CLAIRE MURPHY

THE Revenue’s much anticipated property website has raised many eyebrows after clumping together massive sections of the country to estimate home values.

U2 Bono’s mansion is within the south Dublin band 11, was built before 2000 and is detached which, at first glance, would place it in an |estimated band of €550,000-€600,000.

This would mean that Paul and Ali Hewson would pay just €517 for their Vico Road property this year.

BONO SEES THE LIGHT, APPLAUDS CAPITALISM

[Bono] said it had been “a humbling thing for me” to realize the importance of capitalism and entrepreneurialism in philanthropy, particularly as someone who “got into this as a righteous anger activist with all the cliches.”

INFLUENTIAL rock star Bono believes that the people of Ireland — not Taoiseach Enda Kenny — should have featured on the cover of Time magazine.

“They are the ones who have taken all the pain,” he told the Sunday Independent last week.

The international weekly news magazine featured Mr Kenny on the cover of the European edition above the headline ‘The Celtic Comeback’.

“I heard the Taoiseach said — and I think it’s right — that the real people who should have been on the front cover were the Irish people. If it’s true he said that, then that says a lot about the man. Because it’s the people who have taken all the pain.”

The author of the article, Time Europe editor Catherine Mayer, is also a friend of Bono’s.

They met over 15 years ago through her husband, guitarist Andy Gill of post-punk band Gang of Four.
