Speculation that Oscar-winning star Cuba Gooding Jnr (below) could make an appearance at the festival failed to materialise.

However, the Diary can reveal how he did show up at the All-Ireland Hurling final at Croke Park yesterday to watch Kilkenny trounce Tipperary.

The Jerry Maguire star was spotted dining out in the Michelin-starred eaterie Chapter One on Friday night after his appearance on The Late Late Show.

There with his wife Sara, he was overheard explaining how he was on an Irish road trip.

"He and his wife were planning to get a car and drive out to Wicklow," said a source.
