Bill Murray meets a fan at Druid’s Glen who has a tattoo of the Hollywood star on his arm – Independent.ie

Posted in Tattooing on Aug 23, 2021

Bill Murray had the singular experience of encountering his own face in tattoo form this week, on a visit to Druids Glen Golf Resort.

staff member, who would prefer to remain anonymous, is such a big fan that he has a tattoo of his heros likeness and proudly showed it to the man himself.

The employee also has the likeness of Christopher Reeves as Superman on his arm.

The actor was at the course between Kilcoole and Newtown to film the golf travel documentary The Links Life.

Also while playing golf in north Wicklow, Murray came into possession of the belt of John Byrne who works at the resort shop.

Finding himself without a belt, Murray thought he might be able to buy one in the shop where John works. Unfortunately, they dont sell belts. But John wouldnt see the man go on camera belt-less, and handed over his own!

Johns son James Byrne, who also works in the shop, was one of the people to meet the actor.

James said that there was a lot of excitement ahead of the visit. I only found out the day before, he said. I caddied for one of his brothers and his nephew.

Murray was with a group of about 16 family members. They had breakfast at the clubhouse before hitting the course.

It was almost the dream to find out you would be interacting with someone like that, said James. He was up for a laugh, making jokes every chance he got, and very friendly.

Druids Glen golf manager Marcus Doyle said that the day was a pleasure. We were all a little star struck, he said. We were unsure if it would go ahead or not with the pandemic so when it came to fruition we were delighted.

He and his family were so understated and nice and such a pleasure to deal with.

He had no issue stopping to have his photo taken or sign autographs, and signed a pair of shoes for one fan.

It was an incredibly surreal day, said Marcus. Hes definitely an A-lister all the way, but doesn't behave like it at all.

The Links Life includes presenter Tom Coyne and will air on YouTube and other major streaming platforms and will highlight some of our top golf courses.

Druids Glen was his first of a number of courses around Ireland including the OMeara course at Carton House, Carne Golf Links, Portsalon, the new St Patricks Links course at Rosapenna, Cruit Island, Narin & Portnoo, Enniscrone, Connemara, Galway Bay Golf Resort and Ballybunion. Filming for the series is supported by Tourism Ireland and Filte Ireland.

Niall Gibbons, chief executive of Tourism Ireland said that the documentary is a great way to showcase Ireland and its 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.
