He was rooting for his adopted home county of Kerry earlier today but it seems The Force is nothing if not magnanimous - Mark Hamill has congratulated Dublin on their victory over the Kingdom in the All-Ireland final. 

Hamill tweeted "Congrats to Dublin on their All-Ireland victory! Well done, lads-proud of both teams & grateful 4 Emerald Isle's kindness!" to his 578,000 followers after Dublin's victory over Kerry at Croke Park.

The actor, who returned to Ireland this week to film scenes for Star Wars Episode VIII, had earlier posted an enthusiastic endorsement of Kerry, tweeting, "The force is with Kerry!!! Yerra go wan Kerry!"

After a day's filming on Skellig Michael, Hamill went over to the darkstuff when he pulled pints in The Bridge Bar in the village of Portmagee during the week.

Though tweet of the day has to go to this response to Hamill's words of congratulations. It's kinda genuis.
