Adam Clayton visited with students from Music Generation in support of the program and a recent donation made by U2, along with the Ireland Fund.
These donations ensured that the program will continue to run through 2020 and beyond. The program has also received a commitment of additional funding from the Department of Education, who have committed ongoing funding, allowing the music initiative to expand.
The program currently reaches 26,000 children and young people annually who would otherwise not have access to music education.
“Five years in and Music Generation is continuing to thrive,” Adam Clayton said. “It is wonderful to see this further commitment from the government which will bring us closer to achieving the goal of access to music education for every child and young person in Ireland. The support we received at school was very important to us as young musicians, and we are very proud of our part in this program.”
