    Dave Fanning introduces U2 at Self Aid, a day long benefit concert to highlight chronic unemployment in 1980s Ireland. In this clip edited from U2's performance Bono calls on employers to look after the people who work for them and introduces 'Sunday Bloody Sunday'. Addressing the audience he says, "This country belongs to you just as much as it belongs to RTÉ just as much as it belongs to CIE or ESB or AIB or the Bank of Ireland. And if you work for ANCO or if you work for Manpower. If you are paid by the people you better look after those people. So treat them nice on Monday morning."
