Paul McGrath takes up Domino's delivery job in surprise visit to adoring fans

Paul McGrath may be retired from his footballing days but the Ireland legend has started a surprise career.

McGrath teamed up with Domino's as he surprised some World Cup viewers with some tasty pizza and was the delivery driver on the day.

The sneaky Domino's Ireland social media team Tweeted out to followers which footballer they would most like to sit down and eat pizza with.

And 24-year-old Tye Adamson answered: “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 McGrath decided to pop by with a special delivery and joined the lads for a slice of pizza and watched some of the action.

McGrath said after the meeting: What better way to enjoy the football than watching a nail-biting match with a Domino’s and your mates. I have great memories from playing myself, they all came back to me seeing Tye’s reaction."

And Tye said: "“It is still so surreal that I can now tell people I’ve shared a Domino’s with Paul McGrath. 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.”
