An Irishman Abroad

Barry Keoghan: Episode 241

April 28, 2018

Barry Keoghan is, without a doubt, on track to becoming one of the biggest Irish movie stars of all time. This week he joined Jarlath to discuss having no back up plan (8:00), why he appeared on The Late Late show with hesitancy (12:00) and how he completely blew his first big pay cheque (27:00).

Barry also explains how Conor McGregor is a huge influence to him (37:00), why he lives in Kerry (41:00) and how he very nearly missed out on becoming a Dior Brand Ambassador (46:00).

From using his incredibly difficult life to spur him on (13:00) to the support of his girlfriend (38:00) and his hilarious prank calls to Adrian Kennedy (43:00), this is a thoroughly enjoyable conversation with one of Ireland’s fastest rising stars.
