Football legend Paul McGrath surprises fans with pizza delivery

Football fans in Ashtown were left in awe when their Domino’s pizza delivery driver turned out to be Paul McGrath.

Domino’s and the former football star to surprise fans with an extra special delivery during a World Cup game last week. The pizza giants posed a question to their social media followers asking which football legend they would most like to watch a game with.

Tye Adamson, 24, commented on Twitter “with all the useless defending going on, a New Yorker with Paul McGrath in honour of his heroics in Giants Stadium at USA ‘94 would be a dream come true. OOH AH PAUL MCGRATH!!” And Tye and his friends were left in awe when they answered the door on Friday night to their Domino’s delivery, only to find their idol on the doorstep.

“What better way to enjoy the football than watching a nail-biting match with a Domino’s and your mates,” McGrath said. “I have great memories from playing myself, they all came back to me seeing Tye’s reaction. I hope to have the opportunity to work with Domino’s again to surprise some fans.”

Tye said he got the “biggest surprise ever”. “It is still so surreal that I can now tell people I’ve shared a Domino’s with Paul McGrath,” he said. “No one will ever believe me. None of the remaining matches will live up to that one, after watching it with Ireland’s greatest football legend and the lads.”
