There’s been a load of Jack Nicholson sightings in Dublin today… but is it really him?

We have answers.


Over the past day or so, several Dubliners have claimed to have spotted Jack Nicholson wandering around the place.

There were sightings of him at the Jameson Distillery…

In Brogan’s.

On a hop-on hop-off bus tour.

And just randomly on O’Connell Street.

Here’s Norman Deesing.

Earlier this evening, he updated his cover photo on Facebook to this…

FYI, Norman is available to do weddings if that’s the kind of thing that floats your boat…
