BILL MURRAY was a surprise guest at Thurles for the All-Ireland hurling quarter-final between Cork and Galway.
The ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Groundhog Day’ movie star was in the stands at Semple Stadium alongside legendary horse owner JP McManus.
Although it’s unclear who he was cheering on that day, he was treated to a tense game of hurling that ended with Galway edging out Cork.
This is not the first time that Murray has been spotted on sports venues in Ireland.
Last August, while on a week-long tour of Irish golf courses for an upcoming documentary, the 71-year-old entered a draw to win a signed Mayo GAA shirt.
He also received a Connacht rugby shirt when he traveled to Galway Bay Golf Resort.
His appearance at Semple Stadium comes weeks before JP McManus hosts its annual Pro Am golf tournament at Adare Manor.
Some of the world’s biggest golfing stars will play the Limerick course on July 4th.
Among the competitors listed are Leona Maguire, Shane Lowry, Tiger Woods, Seamus Power, Padraig Harrington and Rory McIlroy.
In May, McIlroy confirmed his Pro Am involvement, while ruling himself out of the Irish Open.
He is currently competing at the US Open and is expected to take a break afterwards, meaning he will skip the Irish Open, which runs from June 30 to July 3.
He will then compete at Adare Manor before taking another break before the Open.
Tiger Woods also hopes to be fit and capable in time for Pro Am, despite an injury which forced him to withdraw from the US Open.
There are also a number of listed golfers who are involved in the controversial Saudi-backed LIV Golf Tour.
Bryson de Chambeau, Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson, Louis Oosthuizen,
A number of non-golfing celebrities are also expected to appear.
Murray’s visit to Thurles will surely fuel speculation that he could be won.
