A mobile recording studio honouring the late John Lennon is open to the public today in Dublin.
The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus gives young Irish people the opportunity to record and produce a song and music video in a single eight hour session.
Launched earlier this year in Liverpool by Lennon's surviving wife Yoko Ono, it was brought to Ireland by Music Generation, a musical education programme funded by U2 and philanthropic organisation Ireland Funds.
The bus has been in Ireland for nearly two weeks, stopping off in Cork city, Portlaoise and now Dublin. Tomorrow it will continue its tour of Europe, and will remain on the road for the forseeable future.
Another bus has been touring North America for the past 16 years.
The bus stopped off at the National Concert Hall this morning and will move to Essex Street East in Temple Bar later this evening.
Newstalk took a tour inside the state-of-the-art studio.
