Video: Former Northern Ireland player Philip Mulryne ordained as priest

Philip Mulryne, the former Northern Ireland football international and now newly-ordained priest, has been hailed as an inspiration to young people.

The 39-year-old ex-Manchester United player, originally from Belfast, will say his first Mass at St Oliver Plunkett Church in Dunmurry tonight.

Father Mulryne was ordained on Saturday at a ceremony in Dublin attended by family and friends. He will be assigned to the Dominican Priory to join the chaplaincy team at Newbridge College, Co Kildare.
