US comedian Josh Pray has shared his reaction to Dublin winning yesterday's All-Ireland replay on social media, after previously announcing he was taking a break from sharing his GAA views.

The social media star shot to fame here thanks to his hugely engaging videos reacting to GAA matches. He also posted a video promoting travel to Ireland which received over 700,000 views.

The viral comedian, who has 2m followers on Facebook, had Tourism Ireland and the GAA to thank as they managed to source a precious ticket to the original clash between the five-in-a-row chasing Dublin and the Kingdom of Kerry.

However, Pray came under fire from some fans when he was given a golden ticket to the recent final between Dublin and Kerry by Tourism Ireland and the GAA.

He took to Facebook last week to announce that, due to the negativity, he would not make videos based on Ireland for some time.

"Due to the negative nature of some messages that I’ve gotten from some Ireland based individuals whom think I should let Irish bred folks commentate Irish sports, I will refrain from posting about the Irish culture for a few weeks," he said

After reassuring Irish fans that he will return, Pray made his (very excited) comeback with his response to yesterday's replay - and his reaction has received floods of praise from social media fans.

"Never quit Josh. That was great and so was the game," one follower said.
