Irish actor, Chris O’Dowd is encouraging anyone living in London to take a break from the craziness of the city during the Olympics and to tour across the pond to Ireland.

The ‘Bridesmaids’ star who lives in London plans to watch the games in Ireland where he is filming the second series of the Sky 1 show, Moone Boy, reports the Belfast Telegraph.

O’Dowd admitted, “I love the Olympics but I hate the congestion.”

“I live in south London and love this vibrant place most of the time. But this summer, it’s going to boil over and spill a bit. Ireland is only a short hop across the water, and within two hours you could be surrounding yourself with beautiful scenery, good food and great craic with the friendliest locals in the world.”

The actor reckons that this idea would be best for both countries involved, saying, “I think I’m doing a favor for two people. Nothing would be more helpful for the Olympics than for half of the people to leave.”

Chris is supporting Discover Ireland’s Escape The Madness campaign.
