Football: Notre Dame is set for Friday kickoff in Ireland

August 30, 2012 | 12:16 pm

The Sherman Oaks Notre Dame football team got a tour of Croke Park, home of the Gaelic Games, on Thursday in Dublin, Ireland. The team is set to play Hamilton from Chandler, Ariz., on Friday.

Coach Kevin Rooney said, "Everybody had a good night sleep," after making it through a "snafu" in London, where the team landed on Wednesday en route to Dublin. Certain players were not on a computer list, so a flight was missed. Players then had to fly to Belfast and take a bus to Dublin. And luggage finally arrived.

"We're ready to go," Rooney said.

Kickoff is 11:30 a.m. Pacific Coast time on Friday.
