Pearse Street Garda Station is not the obvious choice of destinations for most tourists. But Hollywood actor Michael Rooker made it top of his must-see places in the city. The American actor, who is known for playing Merle Dixon in popular series The Walking Dead, has been enjoying some time in the capital when he visited one of the city’s less obvious landmarks.
The Guardians of the Galaxy star is in Ireland to attend this weekend’s Comic Con in the Convention Centre and he revealed he wanted to visit the city centre garda station when he arrived in Dublin – joking that he was in town to lend a hand.
