Irish Eurovision hopefuls Jedward joined Hollywood actress and friend Tara Reid on a visit to the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare over the weekend.
John and Edward Grimes travelled to the world famous visitor attraction while on a tour of the country with the star of American Pie Reunion, who also appeared alongside the twins as a housemate on Celebrity Big Brother.
Jedward will travel to Azerbaijan next month to participate in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest with their song ‘Waterline’. The last time Ireland won the competition was in 1996.
Among the celebrities that have visited the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience since it opened in 2007 are Hollywood film director Steven Spielberg, King Albert II and Queen Paola of Belgium, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, Irish football manager Giovanni Trapattoni, broadcaster Gay Byrne, Ireland and Munster rugby player Paul O’Connell, and hundreds of Ambassadors, Overseas Dignitaries, EU delegations, Oireachtas Members and other politicians.
The Cliffs of Moher’s reputation as a leading tourism landmark has been further enhanced by the site’s inclusion as a finalist in the New 7 Wonders of Nature online global contest. In 2011, the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren region of North Clare also were awarded the prestigious designation of membership of the UNESCO-supported Global Geopark network.
