Ant and Dec were spotted on campus in Maynooth and it looked like serious craic

The lads!

THE BIGGEST A-LIST visit Irish colleges can usually boast of is the annual gig featuring Mickey Joe Harte playing the Freshers Ball.

But yesterday, Maynooth stepped it up a notch.

Ant and Dec were spotted on campus – and were only too happy to stop for pictures with the mob of fans once they stepped out of their car

Few beers few mates 🍻

Once word got out that the pair had arrived, it spread across the college like wildfire

In fairness, if you saw Ant and Dec passing you’d 100% stop for a selfie

Now, it’s not been confirmed why the pair were in the college – but we need to get to the bottom of this

And sure enough, it looks like a BGT contestant from an upcoming episode goes to college there

We’re a few weeks into the series so you’d assume that this Maynooth student’s audition/storyline is coming up soon.

Here they are with the film crew in tow

What a day to be wandering around campus

At least we (think) we know why they were there

It was “next level exam procrastination” for those studying

You can’t blame them.


A full tour of Irish college campuses should be next on their itinerary.

Imagine the reception.
