Actor David Koechner, star of The Anchorman and The Office, is one of many American A-listers who holds a soft spot for The Emerald Isle.

David stopped by St Jude’s GAA club in Templeogue, Southwest Dublin yesterday evening to watch a game of hurling.

In typical fashion, the 51-year-old stayed to have a pint to celebrate their victory.

Cementing the friendship, the team reciprocated the star with a jersey and welcomed him to the club.

David and his wife Leigh have been lapping up all the city has to offer these last few days, hitting up pubs like Toners and Cobblestone, and taking a trip on the Viking Spash Tour.

David’s Anchorman alumnus Paul Rudd recently proclaimed to David Letterman that “Ireland is the best place on Earth.”

He famously spent a week in Donegal and Galway with fellow actors Peter Drinklage, Bobby Cannavale and Joe Le Truglio on a whirlwind stag party.

He added, “it is hands down the greatest country”.

While promoting Anchorman in 2010, David, along with Paul, Will Ferrell and Steve Carell, were gifted with Irish football jerseys with their names on the back.
