Trinity College Library. Specifically in The Lecky Library we can find this mural by Robert Ballagh entitled ‘Three People with Jackson Pollock’ from 1983. Specifically, it is located in the entrance hall to the bookstore. Specifically, in 1979, U2 used these facilities to take a photo session with Patrick Brocklebank:

“In February 1979, Bono me asked me to do a photoshoot With his band U2. So we agreed to meet in the Arts Building at Trinity Dublin College, was the Saturday morning from 10 February of that year. When we meet in the lobby – there was not no sign of drums Larry Mullen. Bono told me Larry not here, so we called Guggi. Guggi aka Guggi was a key member from the band sister to U2 what was The Virgin Prunes. Were from the same area north of Dublin like era U2. That afternoon one of the rivals de U2, A band named “The Vipers” they played in a farewell show in the Night Club from McGonagles’s, which is found next to Grafton Street. There Larry Mullen he approached me and He said: “I have heard What did you do a photoshoot this morning but nobody told me. U2 they are full of ideas and no they were afraid to try. They were easy working with they. This was a fact distinctive against some rival gangs. A) Yes what did i drink these photographs, with the paint from Ballagh in the background. The building of Trinity Philosophy and Letters, it was at that time just finished, I had an aspect futuristic modern. Bono & Co, probably they chose her for that reason. His collection of contemporary art it was also a important factor. Also it was good known for people de U2 and his friends, What The Edge aka David Evans, su brother Richard I had a small apartment in Trinidad. Richard was originally in U2, However, left in March 1978 form the Virgin Prunes with Guggi Y Gavin Friday“.
