A wonderful Bill O'Herlihy mural has been unveiled on the wall of this Dublin pub

What a tribute.


THIS SUNDAY, DUBLIN pub The Back Page in Phibsborough is hosting a very special Italia ’90 Day.

They did one last year too – and it’s just a full day of Italia ’90 themed activities in the bar itself. But this year they’ve done something a little extra special:

They’ve created a wonderful Bill O’Herlihy mural on their side wall

They unveiled it on their Facebook page last night, saying:

Ahead of our annual Italia 90 Day event this Sunday, the Euros this summer and just in general one of Irish sports all-time true heroes, we present our tribute to the legend… Mr Bill O’Herlihy.
Shouts to Omin and Póg Mo Goal for working with us on this.

Lovely work by graffiti artist @ominous_omin.

On Tuesday, they showed us the beginnings of it
