Pictures: Mass held for Notre Dame fans at Dublin Castle

A grand bit of mass for our American visitors this morning…

AHEAD OF THE much-anticipated Emerald Isle Classic American football game at the Aviva Stadium this afternoon, fans of one of the teams involved gathered for mass this morning.

A special Catholic mass was held for fans of Notre Dame – known as the Fighting Irish – in the courtyard of Dublin Castle this morning.

It followed a pep rally at the O2 in Dublin last night which was addressed by Taoiseach Enda Kenny and watched by tens of millions of viewers in the US.

Notre Dame takes on the US Naval Academy or Navy at the Aviva at 2pm today.

Here’s a few pictures from the mass at Dublin Castle earlier today:
