THE World's leading Guitarist ‘The Edge’ took time last week to travel to the picturesque coast line after stopping off at the historic Londonderry Arms for lunch in Carnlough Village.

The Hotel was once owned by former Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill,

The rock star arrived in a black out limo around 2pm and was happy to sign autographs for some fans and have his picture taken with some of the hotel staff.

One U2 long time fan Tony Rossbotham from Carnlough brought pictures and memorabilia to be autographed.

Tony said: “I couldn’t believe my luck.

“I have been a U2 fun for over 30 years, it was great to meet one of my heroes. He was so nice and took time to sign all my memorabilia.”

The musician, whose real name is David Evans, was chatting away to staff members and was very interested in the history of the Londonderry Arms.

To complete his visit he also had his picture taken beside Churchill's portrait

U2 were playing two sellout shows at the SSE Arena as part of the European leg of the band’s tour at the weekend
