Video: Irish sports stars celebrate Independence Day in the Phoenix Park
Irish sporting stars were out in force to celebrate Independence Day in the Phoenix Park today.
The occasion was marked by an ‘American theme’ at the American Ambassadors residence today and GAA figures Jason Sherlock, Mossy Quinn, Eamon Fennell and Alan Kerins were trying their hand at American football, along with fellow NFL enthusiast Jamie Heaslip.
“The celebrations are very important,” said Stuart Dwyer, Charge d’Affaires of the US Embassy in Dublin.
“It’s not just Dublin,” he added, “it’s all over the country.”
“I’ll be in Moneygall in Westmeath tomorrow.”
