Hopes were high at the Irish Open as rumours swirled that George Clooney had arrived in Ireland.

There were also rumours David Beckham would be visiting in the coming days for the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

Earlier today, pictures emerged of Clooney (54) outside a post office in Newcastle, Co Down.

However, there are doubts about the photo's authenticity. The picture shows a bearded Clooney wearing shorts outside a Hallmark store, but just three days ago, he was clean-shaven for the Tomorrowland premiere in Tokyo.

Photoshop fans have also been sharing their evidence online, with one woman showing a photo of Clooney reportedly taken in 2007, wearing the same clothes and in the same pose.

You may not be in Ireland yet George, but you're seriously welcome to visit anytime...
