Hollywood comic actor Will Ferrell turned one of Ireland's most esteemed college debating societies into a frenzied laughter theatre.

Dressed in the full Irish rugby kit, the movie star was at University College Dublin's Literary and Historical Society (L&H) to receive the prestigious James Joyce Award for his tremendous contribution to comedy and entertainment

His speech included a dig at UCD's bitter rival Trinity College Dublin with Ferrell quipping: "The truth of the matter is those guys are going to be working for you."

The actor's sarcasm shone through from start to finish. Talking about retracing his Irish roots over the last fortnight, he said: "It was a good start and we were asked never to come back so that door is probably closed."

Ferrell also spent a night partying with locals in Longford and he added: "I made off with some very antique crystal that is stunning."

 I know this probably won't interest most here but I thought it funny

I'd loved to have seen him....I hope someone recorded it and puts it up on youtube sometime! They attract some fantastic guests to uni debating societies and the guests are usually good sports too for going along with it!

I didn't even know he was in Ireland let alone getting an award here    I laughed aswell they give out the same award to loads of different people...Hans Blix also got one last year or the year before and I think this was also joked upon by Ferrell too  

I would have loved to have seen him too....you know you could be right about Youtube I must keep a check
