Frank: Yes I have. I’ve been there twice actually. It is really interesting, it’s steeped in history isn’t it? It is probably your greatest export, apart from U2.
What is your favourite thing about Ireland?
Frank: Soda bread! When I stayed in Kenmare Bay I lived next to this lovely old woman and she baked a loaf and gave it to me every day. Just some cheddar cheese, a slice of tomato and some real butter on soda bread, to me it’s like you bite into it and I’m just really happy. So I’d say soda bread, and then I’ll say the people, maybe I should swap those around… The people, then the soda bread.
What about the people that make the soda bread?
Frank: Well they are just gods! They're generally women. The women ain’t bad and all!
