The Ordinary Man Is Honored

Bono and The Edge were among those who honored Christy Moore as he received the lifetime achievement award from the Irish Recorded Music Association Friday evening in Dublin. While Bono paid tribute to the Irish folk singer by sending his wife to the ceremony and a video message, Edge took a more physical role, presenting Moore with the bronze statue.

The ceremony included a charity auction to benefit Crumlin Childrens Hospital and the Chernobyl Childrens Project. A handpainted guitar by The Edge and a lithograph from Peter and the Wolf signed by Bono and his daughters were among the items auctioned for the charities.
