"Mr. Rooney has done so much for Ireland that he would be in my estimation the ideal person."

"Rooney co-founded the American-Ireland Fund, gives scholarships to Irish students, awards the Rooney Prize for literature in Ireland, and co-founded the Ireland Institute to resolve Irish conflicts."

Compared to all his charitable contributions to the people of W. PA this seems so minor. Everybody knows about the above charitable acts, anyone have a list of who he gives to in the US? 8)

Dan's son Art II has been running the day-to-day operations for several years now. This wouldn't change anything about how the Steelers are run.

Here are some other benefits of having Dan Rooney as Ambassador to Ireland:

1) Guiness and Harp to be sold cheap in Pittsburgh.
2) Hypocycloids added to Lucky Charms cereal as new marshmellow shapes
3) Riverdance renamed to Monongahela Riverdance
4) The Blarney Stone renamed to the Blier Stone
5) Primantti Bros franchises open in Dublin and Belfast.
6) The word "Yinz" gains global respectability as it becomes the chic new word in Ireland. And it just sounds cooler with an Irish accent.
