    TG4 celebrate Australia Day with brilliant Alf Stewart tweet as Home and Away star

    If you, like hundreds of others, follow TG4 on Twitter, you may have noticed that things have changed today.

    Several of their tweets, as well as their display photo, bio, and even replies, are all upside down.

    That’s because Australia Day is today, January 26.

    Australia Day commemorates the landing of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788, and the raising of the Union Flag by Arthur Phillip following days of exploration of Port Jackson in New South Wales.

    What better way for TG4 to commemorate the occasion than with a photo of everyone’s favorite Aussie, Ray Meagher, aka Alf Stewart from Home and Away?

    Naturally, the picture accompanied a tweet, with both being upside down, captioned: “beannachtaí ar na hÉireannaigh ar fad atá san Astráil #Australiaday” which translates as “Greetings to all the Irish in Australia!”

    In the photo, the veteran actor is shown in a Mayo GAA strip, which has a fascinating backstory.
