Celebrity endorsements haven’t helped the cause in the past, but last night Kim Jong-un showed his support for the treble chasing Dubs.
After it was explained to Kim that Dublin “keep on winning,” Kim Jong-un asked “So can you get me one of their jerseys?”
“What are they called, Dublin? That’s my team. Like my rockets they keep on Dublin and Dublin!” said an elated Kim Jong-un thinking he had come up with a new joke.
Donald Trump later replied “in fairness, it was a decent joke”.
Photos on Twitter suggest that Kim Jong-un did end up getting a Dublin jersey as well. Maybe he’ll be able to swing by Croke Park this September to see where Sam ends up.
The Boys in Blue take on the Westerners in the All-Ireland final next Sunday week. Hill 16 Army supporters group founder Barry Fennell told Crab Mcgrath that the crowd last year was two-thirds Mayo fans but he feels that Kim Jong-un’s endorsement will motivate Dublin fans to take it back.
