WATCH: This Hugely Famous Sports Star Sang Johnny Cash In A Dublin Pub Last Night

In Ireland, the world of American Football only really comes to life at the start of every February when Super Bowl Sunday rolls around.

Pubs and clubs around the country pack up for the occasion with many taking Mondays off work in order make the most of the late-night airing of one of the world's most high profile sporting events.

While there are a large number of genuine NFL fans here, throughout the rest of the year the gridiron season tends to fly under the radar and only a handful of its stars could claim to be household names in this part of the world.

Along with the likes of Tom Brady and Odell Beckham Jr, the Manning brothers, Eli and Peyton, could lay claim to such a status and the latter appears to be having a grand old time of it in Dublin at the moment. 

41-year-old Peyton, who won the Super Bowl twice, has been spotted joining in the craic at the The Quays bar in Temple Bar and even took to the mic to belt out some old school Johnny Cash in the form of 'Folsom Prison Blues.'

While NFL isn't exactly up there with the GAA, rugby or soccer in terms of popularity on these shores, it seems a lot of people were very excited to see him. 

Great stuff. Anyone know where he's off to tonight?
