A portrait of U2 singer Bono by Louis le Brocquy is unveiled at the National Gallery of Ireland.

The oil on canvas painting, 'Image of Bono', is the fifth in a series of portraits of leading Irish men and women commissioned for the National Portrait Collection sponsored by Irish Life and Permanent. 

The unveiling celebration also marked the reopening of the National Portrait Collection at the National Gallery. 

Bono has described Louis le Brocquy as the grand master of Irish and European art. Le Brocquy said he wanted to capture the singer's inner dynamism and the man the public will recognise.

To the Bono the portrait looks,

Like a head full of too many ideas.
