Why Michael Bublé will feel right at home in Ireland this week

He’s one of us now.

Up to 50,000 fans will flock to the area to catch the singer live. But really, past all the hysteria, he’s just like us.

Here are a few reasons why we think Michael will feel right at home for the duration of the week, he’s got a lot more in common with your average Irish fella than we would originally have thought.

He’s up for the craic

He’s not afraid to get up to a bit of divilment, whether it’s dressing up as Bieber or covering Rebecca Black’s ‘Friday’.

He’s a Mammy’s boy…


…and mothers and grannies love him.

“Isn’t he a dote?”

However, he’s sure to keep a fence between them at all times, things can get out of hand.
