Steelers owner Dan Rooney to be ambassador to Ireland

By James O'Toole, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

A White House official confirmed today that Steelers owner Dan Rooney will be named U.S. ambassador to Ireland.

A ceremony will be held this morning in the Roosevelt Room of the White House.

Mr. Rooney was in Washington last night to be honored by the American Ireland Fund, the group he has nurtured as a force for peace in Northern Ireland. He is to be at the White House today, St. Patrick's Day, for a reception for Brian Cowen, the Irish Taoiseach, or prime minister.

Mr. Rooney was an outspoken campaigner for President Barack Obama. He presented the then-candidate with a Steelers jersey as he introduced him at Mr. Obama's final appearance in Pittsburgh before the election.

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
