VIDEO: Joe Biden and his Secret Service detail meet delirious Irish fans in Westport

The American Vice-President is said to have enjoyed the festivities.

JOE reader Niall Quinn has sent us on this clip of American Vice President Joe Biden in Westport on Wednesday, directly after Ireland's momentous victory over Italy at the European Championships.

Niall says: "US Vice President and his large Secret Service, army and Garda security detail got more than they bargained for when the celebrations from Ireland's win over Italy spilled out of the Jester Pub in Westport.

"(They were) keeping a watchful eye on Mr. Biden, who is on a visit to Mayo. Far from being alarmed, they said they enjoyed the festivities."

You don't get this kind of thing in Washington D.C.
