or Groundhog Day alone, Bill Murray deserves our undying love and devotion as a Comedy God.
Even if he did make those godawful Garfield movies.
And now, having headlined the Cat Laughs festival down in Kilkenny many moons ago (“Never f**k with a f**ker!“), the man is back on his ancestral soil for the latest round of the golfing series, The Links Life.
Murray is being joined by his co-host, author Tom Coyne (who writes pretty much exclusively about, yep, golf), this week for a few rounds around Ireland – and the first stop on his itinerary is Druids Glen.
With lesser golf clubs such as Carton House, Portsalon, St Patrick’s Links at Rosapenna, Cruit Island plus Narin & Portnoo, Enniscrone, Connemara, Galway Bay Golf Resort and Ballybunion also on Murray’s menu for his week-long visit, sure, is it any wonder that the chief executive of Tourism Ireland, Niall Gibbons [pictured above with Billy boy], is very excited and extremely delighted.
“We are delighted to support the filming of The Links Life featuring Bill Murray,” he says [told yas]. “It is a really great way to showcase Ireland and some of our top golf courses. Our aim is to remind viewers that Ireland offers some of the very best golf in the world, as well as spectacular scenery and fantastic experiences. The episodes filmed here will help ensure that Ireland stays ‘top of mind’ among golfers in the US and elsewhere around the world.”
Sing it, brother. The golf travel documentary will air on YouTube and a few other major streaming platforms.
In the meantime, look out for young Bill on your travels. And make sure to thank him for Groundhog Day.
