- Hewson of Dublin:
- The rock star Bono is from a family of
Hewson of Dublin.
I have now proved that these are not related to Hewson of Co.Kerry,

- However, an article in the Irish Times,
Feb 24, 1998, p.5,
says Hewson of Castle Hewson are said to be related to Bono,
once considered buying Castle Hewson.
