John C. Reilly.

Actor John C. Reilly, the star attraction at last week’s Galway Film Fleadh, revealed that he’s snuck into Ireland with his pal and fellow Irish fan Will Ferrell.

“We actually got a private plane here before over from London,” Reilly told the website

“We have shared Irish memories now, me and Will. We had good times, I got off the plane and kissed the tarmac.”

Reilly also created some headlines in the west when he said that he’ll take part in the sequel to Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph, an animated feature that made close to $500 million worldwide in 2012.

Reilly said he made the deal to return as the voice of Ralph “right here in Galway, on the phone.”
