Rock Singer Bob Geldof Given the Freedom of Dublin



Rock singer and campaigner Bob Geldof has been given the freedom of Dublin at a ceremony in the Irish capital

Rock singer Bob Geldof has been awarded the "freedom of the city" Sunday March 6th, 2006 by his hometown Dublin, an honor in recognition of his humanitarian work.

A frequent campaigner alongside fellow Irish rocker Bono, Geldof also organized the landmark Live Aid concert in aid of famine relief in Ethiopia in 1985 and repeated the feat with the Live 8 concert last year in Scotland.

Accepted a Waterford Crystal globe, the star said "I can't think of a more beautiful day for me. To be a freeman of one of the most free cities on the planet is indeed something".

Also receiving "freedom of the city" honors was Ronnie Delaney, who won gold for Ireland in the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, Australia.
