Holywood hero Rory has made us all so proud


Published 21/06/2011

I would like to extend congratulations to Rory Mcllroy on his success at the US Open.

This is a fantastic day for everyone in Holywood as one of its most famous son's lifts one of the world's most prestigious sporting trophies.

Rory is born and bred in Holywood and I know how proud he and his family are of his home town - and I know how much it means to everyone in Holywood.

This is not only a great sporting achievement for Holywood, but also for Northern Ireland.

The success of Rory Mcllroy at the US Open has helped put Northern Ireland very much on the world stage for its sporting achievements.

To have two Ulstermen winning one of the world's most-coveted trophies in the sporting world in consecutive years will be remembered for many years to come.
