Proposed four-storey facility would be located on the site of the band's Dublin studio
Conor Pope, The Irish Times
Plans for a U2 museum on the site of the band's recording studio in Dublin's docklands are at an advanced stage, with a planning application set to be lodged in the coming days.
Despite the fact that - along with Guinness, St Patrick, Oscar Wilde and, possibly, Michael Flatley's feet - U2 are Ireland's most famous export, there are no public spaces celebrating the band's achievements on the world stage.
Even the walls of graffiti which once surrounded their old studio at Windmill Lane have been levelled to make way for towers of glass and steel.
It is intended the four-storey museum will be dedicated to the band's archive and will include artefacts covering its 40-year story.
He could have discovered the secrets of the universe

The Edge has recalled his first experience with magic mushrooms.
U2 joined Zane Lowe on Beats 1 earlier today to discuss their album 'The Joshua Tree', of which they are celebrating the 30th anniversary.
While Bono was reminiscing about the past, he described them as "high times". "There were no drugs," he quickly clarified, but his bandmates corrected him, mentioning magic mushrooms.
Asked by Lowe if any of the songs on the album were inspired by being on mushrooms, The Edge responded: "Well, this was a bit later, but I had one funny moment with the mushrooms. This was a metaphysical experiment, you understand? It was very spiritual."

He sings of scaling the highest of mountains from the depths of downtown, his wardrobe as black as the shadowy alley down which he strolls. A flash of Las Vegas police motorcycle headlights illuminates Bono from behind as he ambles forward, his voice and arms rising in unison as a sudden burst of color swallows the darkness like neon jaws clamping shut.
The camera moves in circles and films at an exceptionally slow rate -- six frames per second as opposed to the standard 24 -- creating a swirl of light and sound that visually mimics what's taking place in front of this casino or that, where any boundaries between artist and audience are being similarly blurred.
It's April 12, 1987, and U2 is about to become the biggest band in the world.

Rock star Bono today left flowers and an emotional message at the scene where Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel killed 84 people after driving a 19-tonne lorry down the famous Nice promenade.
The U2 lead singer, 56, was caught up in the terror attack and had to be rescued from a nearby restaurant by anti-terrorist police.
And he today wrote a poignant message saying that 'there is no end to grief' - lyrics used on the band's track California (There Is No End To Love).
The signer-songwriter was on the terrace of 'La Petite Maison', close to where the Bouhlel, 31, drove his hired lorry into crowds enjoying a firework display while celebrating Bastille Day.
After the atrocity, Bono tweeted a message of support to the victims of the massacre and he was today photographed laying flowers to pay his respects.
A minute's silence was today held on the Promenade des Anglais, the famous seafront where helpless revellers - including 10 children - were hit by the terrorist's lorry.
Bono was dining in a restaurant near the scene of the horrific Bastille Day lorry massacre in Nice at the time of the attack, it has been reported.

The U2 singer was apparently caught up in the panic as the terror unfolded on the Promenade des Anglais on Thursday evening.
La Petite Maison restaurant owner Anne-Laure Rubi told French newspaper Le Parisien the 56-year-old was dining on the terrace near the seafront when the attack happened.
She said: "Suddenly I saw people running, without shouting. It was a silent panic. It was shocking."
U2's the Edge yesterday paid a moving tribute to his "one-off" dad who passed away aged 84 at the weekend.

Bandmates Bono, Larry Mullen and Adam Clayton rallied around the rock star and his siblings Richard and Gill as their father Garvin Evans was laid to rest in north Co Dublin.
Speaking to the congregation at Howth Presbyterian Church, the guitarist - whose real name is Dave Evans - praised his father's "unswerving" positivity in the face of a decade-long battle with illness and vowed to follow in his "truly amazing" footsteps.
He said: "What can I say about my dad? He was a one-off - a bundle of energy.
"His ceaseless optimism was awe-inspiring, particularly during the last 10 years of his life when he had every reason to be despondent. I can honestly say I never saw a single moment of negativity. He loved life and he lived it always looking forward."

Gwenda passed away in 2012.
Mr Evans' heartbroken family said he died "peacefully after a long and courageous battle with illness met with typical joie de vivre, in the wonderful care of the staff of the Bons Secours Hospital."
