He was sat alongside staunch Limerick hurling backer JP McManus, the well-known businessman and racehorse owner.

Murray, star of Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day and a host of other films, saw Galway book their spot in the All-Ireland semi-finals after a one point win over Cork.

The trip to Semple Stadium wasn't Murray's first experience of the GAA – last year while touring Ireland the actor signed up for a raffle to win a signed Mayo jersey.

In a video posted on Twitter last year, Mr Murray said he’d signed up for the local raffle in Enniscrone, Co Sligo, in support of cystic fibrosis care.

Murray spent a number of weeks in Ireland last summer filming a YouTube series alongside author Tom Coyne to play some of the country’s best golf courses.
