Offaly fans Jay-Z and Beyonce fly in for today’s All-Ireland Under 20 hurling final

American pop superstars and Offaly GAA fanatics Jay Z and Beyonce landed at Shannon Airport late last night ahead of this evening’s All-Ireland under 20 hurling final in Kilkenny.

The celebrity couple regularly fly over for Offaly matches. Jay Z’s great-grandfather, Séamus Molloy from Tullamore, emigrated to America in the early 1900’s and Beyonce’s granny is a Colgan from Cappincur.

The couple spoke to reporters as they walked through the airport terminal before jumping into a limousine which was waiting to take them to Tullamore, where they were believed to be staying at the Bridge House Hotel until today’s big game in Kilkenny.

“The Biffos are back yo!” Jay Z shouted to the waiting press photographers. “Listen up! Tipp gonna get an ass whooping.”

He also had a message for his favourite Tullamore pub.

“Tell my main man Fergie in Fegie’s Bar to start pouring me a big creamy-ass mother-f***ing pint of Guinness. Man I love that shit. Tell ’em B.” he said to his wife, hopefully referring to the first letter of her name and not the word bitch.

Beyonce confirmed Jay Z does indeed love Guinness as well as visiting his favourite Irish restaurant, The Roma Grill in Tullamore, on nights out in the midlands town.

She said the couple have been following the Offaly under 20’s progress in this year’s championship from their Hollywood mansion, which they named ‘Croghan Hill’ after their favourite Offaly landmark, and told reporters she’s quietly confident about today’s final.

“I cried like a baby when we beat Dublin to reach the final. It was so emotional. Afam Screeney is a full-back’s worst nightmare, good in the air and on the ground. Blistering pace, incredible skill. Bottom line is, he’s a baller. Catch him if you can y’all, but you can’t. The whole team are heroes. We finally have the next generation of Johnny Dooleys and Brian Whelahans. Offaly are back baby.”

Beyonce also confirmed that in honour of the under 20’s reaching the All-Ireland final, the couple plan to record a hip-hop version of The Offaly Rover when they return to the States. Dr. Dre has already been signed up to produce the track.
