“She has let us Dubliners down, she has let Ireland down, because we thought she was one thing and we have been duped.” HE Lord Mayor of Dublin Micheal Mac Donncha agreed with Geldof that Ms Suu Kyi should be stripped of the award for her silence over ethnic cleansing in Myanmar.

people. The band, led by singer Bono, posted a lengthy plea aimed at the Nobel Peace Prize laureate, after saying they had tried several times to reach out to her directly.

“For these atrocities against the Rohingya people to be happening on her watch blows our minds and breaks our hearts.”
