Chris O'Dowd was in Leinster House this evening and everybody wanted a selfie with him

Eh what is on his face?

IRISH ACTOR CHRIS O’Dowd was in Leinster House this evening.

He was there as a guest of Fine Gael Senator Catherine Noone and her partner Barry Flanagan and also dined with Fine Gael TD for Roscommon Frank Feighan.

It seems that Flanagan was in Dramsoc in UCD with O’Dowd and that they have remained great friends ever since.

noone Catherine Noone / Facebook Catherine Noone / Facebook / Facebook has heard that a lot of politicians got a snap with the star outside the Dáil bar, something Senator Noone confirmed. Or to put it another way, “everyone jumped on the bandwagon”.

Labour Party TD Joanna Tuffy has even posted her picture on Twitter:

Alan Kelly was reported to be among those spotted in the selfie commotion.

We wonder if anyone asked what was on his face?

It’s understood that O’Dowd was in town for The Program, Stephen Frears’ thriller about Lance Armstrong — based on David Walsh’s Seven Deadly sins.

Chris O’Dowd plays the Sunday Times journalist who helped take down Armstrong.
