Remember the last time the Cruiser came to Ireland?

TOM CRUISE IS coming to Ireland tomorrow, hot on the heels of the news that he is in fact from Roscommon. Him and Luke Ming Flanagan both.

We know he’s excited from this clip, where he declares that he “loves Ireland”, has seen U2 “so many times” in concert and “would love to visit… again.”


So, let’s take a moment to recall the last time* the Cruiser came over . He totally partied with Pat Kenny, Dave Fanning, and Michael D. (And Neil Jordan.)

Here’s how it went:

“Dave, I just CANNOT with Pat right now. You know?”

“I’m standing on the Yellow Pages, Higgins. Old Hollywood trick.”

“Well hello, ladies of 1995.”

“And they’re called ‘balloons’, you say? Amazing.”

(In this image, Pat’s attention was called away at the crucial moment by someone holding a tray of nibbles above their head.)

That was for the premiere of Interview With A Vampire. We think you’ll agree it looks like a blast.

And here’s the great thing: Tom and Pat will get a chance to catch up on old times when he does the Late Late Show on Friday. The banter will be ninety.

*We think it was the last time anyway. We can’t find any others.

All images: Photocall Ireland!

Tom Cruise is Irish now too>
