While everybody in Ireland was captivated by the Coldplay concert in Croke Park last night, our very own U2 were over in London doing something wonderful of their own.

U2 invited 50 of the firefighters and their families who had so bravely attended the scene at Grenfell Towers for a private concert which doubled as their sound check.

U2 played seven songs in total for the small crowd of 50 heroes in an otherwise empty stadium...

One lady even streamed it live on Periscope for the world to see...

Fair play, lads.
