11 reasons Michael Flatley is just a boring Irish lad at heart

He may own rhinoceros horns, but he’s really just one of the lads. Here’s the evidence.

MICHAEL FLATLEY MAY have a giant mansion stuffed with precious rhino horns, but it’s not all glam.

At heart he’s just a regular, standard-issue Irish lad.

Here’s the proof:

1. He only owns one pair of Good Jeans

3. He doesn’t know what to do with his face in photos

Sure didn’t we all?

7. He’s very proud of his road frontage

8. And when he got married, he had a giant country wedding and invited everyone

11. And finally: he cares about Irish history, but has a slightly shaky idea of what actually happened

As evidenced by this recreation of the 1916 Rising through the medium of Irish dance.
