Ireland Welcomes Stranded American Troops
The Irish are known for their hospitality, but this pretty much takes the cake:
U.S. soldiers were given a true Irish welcome at a wedding in Co Clare this week.
The 300 troops were stranded in Shannon last weekend after their Iraq-bound plane was grounded.
As luck would have it, they were booked into the same hotel as the wedding party for Amelia Walsh and Sean O’Neill.
And so the 300 troops were invited to join the festivities at the Clare Inn in Newmarket-on-Fergus.
The groom’s uncle, Joe O’Neill said: “It didn’t take long before the combat fatigues were manoeuvring to the strains of ‘The Walls of Limerick’.”
