This band wrote an epic tribute to George Clooney’s Irish roots!


Like Barack Obama before him, Hollywood actor George Clooney has his ancestral home in a small Irish town.

George's roots apparently stem from the tiny village of Tullahought in Co. Kilkenny, and locals say they have even pinpointed the now-derelict house where George's great-great-grandfather was born. 'Tis a long way from Lake Como!

Now an Irish band are capitalising on George's recent comments that he plans to take a trip to the Emerald Isle to show his new wife Amal Alamuddin where his ancestors came from.

"‘I’m embarrassed that I’ve never properly been there before now. I’ve been talking about going there for years and Bono has been trying to get me to do a bike ride around Ireland with him," said George earlier this month. The actor added that he hopes to visit this summer.

Limerick group The Corrigan Brothers have penned a tune called When George Clooney and Amal Come Back Home to Tullahought, celebrating the amazing welcome George would be given if he did make it to the small Kilkenny town.

The video for the song will be filmed in Tullahought soon, with the single being released on February 28th.

The first copy, of course, will be couriered directly to George!
