How many GAA players can you fit in Matt LeBlanc's Rolls Royce?

What does ‘how you doin’?’ sound like in a Kerry accent? Matt LeBlanc found out yesterday.

KERRY HAS BEEN abuzz this weekend at the presence of new Top Gear presenters Matt LeBlanc and Chris Evans.

Yesterday locals in Kenmare were double-taking at the sight of the former Friends actor cruising down the main street in a blue Rolls Royce.

In a bizarrely Irish twist, the actor even managed to run into RTÉ presenter Kathryn Thomas.

That wasn’t where the excitement peaked.

During the trip they also paid a visit to Dingle GAA Club where they tried to fit as many GAA players as they could into LeBlanc’s Rolls Royce.

Co-host Chris Evans here looking a bit bemused by proceedings.


According to a TheJournal.ie reporter who was present at the scene “a good few” players managed to pile into the vehicle, although it didn’t exactly look like an official experiment.

Also, needless to say, there was plenty of “how you doin’?” being shouted in Kerry accents at the actor.
