Irish Times: Band Aid archive arrives for posterity after Bob Geldof donation

Irish Times: Band Aid archive arrives for posterity after Bob Geldof donation. “An archivist will spend up to two years cataloguing memorabilia from the famous 1984 campaign for those affected by famine in Ethiopia, the National Library of Ireland (NLI) said. The Boomtown Rats frontman is giving the State hundreds of letters, artwork, poetry and musical recordings after the material had accumulated in a warehouse in London. Much of it will be digitised and put on display for the world to see at the NLI in Dublin.”
