Pictures show Marty Morrissey out on the town with Westmeath's lady footballers

By Sally Gorman

Twitter was alight over the weekend with pictures of Marty Morrissey out on the town in London with the Westmeath's lady footballers - and a couple of All Ireland hurlers into the bargain.

O'Grady's Irish Bar in Seven Kings, London was celebrating its 16th birthday on Saturday night and invited the Westmeath footballers to party with them.

All Ireland winning hurlers Johnny Coen and Aidan Harte were also on hand and even the Liam McCarthy cup made an appearance.

The trip however was short lived for poor Marty as he flew home early Sunday morning to make the Ladies All Ireland Final clash between Dublin and Mayo in Croke Park.
