Mark Hamill’s Beautiful Description Of This Irish County Would Make You Proud To Be Irish

Lovin' Media

Well, have we got heartwarming news for you.

It’s not rare for tourists to the Emerald Isle to gush about its beauty and its splendour – but who knew that our little island was such a hit with one of the world’s most recognisable stars?

Mr Mark Hamill has commented on the pure gorgeousness of County Donegal, a place he spent time in in while shooting Star Wars films. 

His words, posted on Twitter by @Sinead_od1, state:

”It’s such a beautiful country. You just have to walk outside and it’s like a matte painting from an old Hollywood film or special effects. 

It’s so beautiful. It just doesn’t look real, it’s just gorgeous. I didn’t want to leave. The people are so nice. They treated me like family. 

I don’t know what it is but there’s something very magical there. I would encourage everyone to go there. Although they probably don’t want a bunch of loud-mouthed American tourists around all the time.”

We love you too, Luke!
