It's totes amazeballs... A plaque has been placed in Kiely's of Donnybrook in honour of one of it's most famous partons who happens to be fictional.
O'Carroll Kelly creator and writer Paul Howard tweeted before the unveiling from @RossOCK "Tonight, in @Kielysdonnyb I will be receiving an honour I've dreamed about my entire basic life. It's better than an Ireland cap..."
The plaque, placed over the urinals in the gents toilets, reads: "This plaque has been erected in honour of Ross O'Carroll Kelly who hit and missed here for many years."
Speaking on RTE 2fm with Ryan Tubridy, Howard said: "It's been a running joke in the Ross O'Carroll Kelly books for years and in The Irish Times coloumn, that this is where most of Ross' rugby talent went, into the trough in Kiely's.
"The joke has been that one day he hoped the management might see their way clear to erect some kind of memorial to commemorate the fact.
"Pat and Mary [Crimin] the very nice couple who own the pub, phoned me a couple of days ago and said they wanted to finally honour Ross in this way!"
