Thursday night's visit of The Overlap to the 3Arena was an undeniable success, with Roy Keane, Gary Neville, and Jamie Carragher's live panel show bringing a full house to Dublin's Docklands.

The night was full of surprises - with the highlight being the guest appearance of Ireland legend Paul McGrath, to a hero's welcome in his home town.

The trio of Keane, Neville, and Carragher, also carried out a promotional tour of Ireland in the days leading up to the event, with Keane's former clubs of Cobh Ramblers and Rockmount AFC on the list of sites to be ticked off.

On the night in Dublin, video footage was shown of another of their stop-offs - the hallowed turf of Croke Park in Dublin, for a hurling lesson from legend TJ Reid. Roy Keane looked in his element on the Croker pitch - though both Neville and Carragher likely need a few more lessons from the Kilkenny hurler.

Overlap Dublin: Keane, Neville and Carragher pay Croke Park a visit

As part of the Overlap's visit to Dublin, several features were filmed around the country for a special which will air this summer on Sky.

One of those features involved Roy Keane, Jamie Carragher, and Gary Neville paying Croke Park a visit, where they were joined by TJ Reid.

Though the end product is yet to be released officially, one fan in the audience on Thursday night managed to capture some of the footage shown on the big screens as a surprise to fans. In the video, Keane can be seen knocking the sliotar over the bar with ease while Neville and Carragher...well, they seemed to struggle a bit more.



As much as they would give it a good go, Neville and Carragher struggled to even make contact with the ball. Judging by Neville's celebration when he managed to merely get a good strike on the ball, he was highly invested in the whole endeavour.

For Irish sporting fans in the audience in the 3Arena, the guest appearance of TJ Reid was unsurprisingly one of the highlights of the Overlap, and evidently it was not only the audience who were impressed by the Kilkenny man.

In the aftermath of the show, Carragher would share a set of Instagram photos including one with the seven-time All-Ireland winner, who Carragher described as a "hurling legend."

We'll be honest, Jamie Carragher and TJ Reid was not the crossover we were expecting from The Overlap's visit to Dublin, but it is nonetheless very welcome.

We're excited to see the end product of the filmed features from the show's visit to Ireland, which will also feature some segments filmed during the trio's trip to Cork on Wednesday afternoon.
