Hollywood star and Kerryman Michael Fassbender certainly had a fun night celebrating in this hometown of Killarney last night, taking to the stage to belt out a duet for the crowd.

The Inglorious Bastards star was in the Kingdom to celebrate his induction into the Order of Innisfallen this weekend and got into the spirit of the occasion when he gave the crowd a rendition of Elvis Presley’s Suspicious Minds with Dublin singer Ken Kirwan.

The Hollywood heart-throb was accompanied at the celebration by his girlfriend Alicia Vikander and his parents Josef and Adele.

Kirwan, who goes by the stage name Frankly Buble, was performing at the black tie event in Killarney’s Europe Hotel and Resort.

“Whilst in the middle of my set Michael hopped to join me in a duet of Suspicious Minds. A true gent and up for the craic,” said Kirwan.

Previous recipients of the Order of Innisfallen award include singer Daniel O'Donnell.
