Paul Rudd had a run-in with Seamus Coleman's dad on a recent trip to Killybegs
Fortunately, things did not escalate quickly.

FORGET BEING ON the PFA team of the year, Seamus Coleman officially ‘made it’ last night because he was the subject of a story broadcast on American television.

Actor Paul Rudd (of Anchorman and Parks & Recreation fame) was on the Tonight Show with David Letterman and he recounted a tale featuring his trip to Donegal, an Ireland jersey emblazoned with with the number two and the father of Killybegs’ favourite international full-back.

Here’s the clip from last night’s show.
