Will Ferrell

This is one from when Will Ferrell came to the L&H earlier on this year to receive a James Joyce award. It was a great night with him giving a 30 minute stand up routine. I was in the press room when he was wearing a suit beforehand, but had a champions sports bag with him. One of the reporters asked him what was in it, and he said it was "just a new pair of sneakers". Turned out it was a full Irish rugby kit! My favourite quote of the night was his reflections on the James Joyce award:

“As I perused my leather bound volumes of Ulysses, Finnegan's Wake, Dubliners, and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, standing in my mahogany library, a lot of feelings ran across my head, like, man, I should have read these books,”
