    Gerry Kelly was talking about this on the radio earlier – sounded very proud of what Rory has gone on to achieve.

    Side point on how the memory can play tricks on you – Gerry said Rory had missed the first one and then got each of them in the washing machine after that. Just shows how unreliable memory can be! I don’t think he’d seen the footage since.

  • Dewi

    Very good andnowwhat..

  • its amazing how he has grown into a champion in such a short time while his dad look exactly the same!

  • Mick Fealty

    And he’s been ‘cleaning up’ ever since!

  • FDM

    Have you seen Rory in the adverts?

    Jesus wept.

    My pet brick has more personality.

    Its like doing a round of golf at Galgorm with Joel Taggart.

    And no, you don’t ever want to suffer that.

    FDM: Have you seen Rory in the adverts? Jesus wept. My pet brick has more personality.
    Advertisers have struggled to lever sports people into adverts since George Best sold sausages. I think the Santander ad is a milestone – ‘we won’t even try to get these guys to act’.

    Dammit – I failed to close the italics after I quoted FDM. My part of the above begins *after* the personal attack on Rory McIlroy.

    @Reader

    “*after* the personal attack on Rory McIlroy.”

    Simply highlighting that Alec Baldwin’s job is safe. I am happy that Rory is an ace golfer and I don’t have to worry about him taking up an acting or modelling career.

    I know he is “unionisms” poster boy, but aren’t you being a little over-sensitive?
