‘Imagine getting off the plane in Ireland and this is the first person you see’ – Tyrone McKenna gets the Josh Pray treatment

Tyrone McKenna has become the latest Irish Josh Pray obsession.

The American comedian shot to fame on these shores when he posted a now famous video online post watching a GAA game.

It eventually lead to him developing a relationship with the Gaelic sports and the Irish people.

Indeed, he visited the country and attended a the Football final between Dublin and Kerry at Croke Park.

Pray has since posted numerous Irish themed videos and has started to do a regular Irish pic of the week post.

A unique pic of Tyrone McKenna caught his eye this week and after watching clips of the war loving Belfast fighter he became a ‘Mighty Celt’ follower.

Watch below:

McKenna’s most recent trip to the ring was a disappointing one. The light welter suffered just a second career defeat, but did so in the Golden Contract and against old rival Ohara Davies. Even worse it was a tight and close encouther that could have fell in his favour.

There is now talk he may appear in America in March and if Pray’s reaction is anything to go by Americans will, as predicted by manager Jamie Conlan, take to him.
