Reilly has been in Ireland completing duties as the St. Patrick's Day International Guest of Honor. He also appeared on a special "best of the Irish" airing of RTÉ's Late Late Show, where he captivated audiences with a powerful rendition of "Raglan Road" and "The Wild Rover".
Speaking about his connection to Ireland, Reilly said in 2019: "It’s a beautiful place and every time I come here things just seem to go well for me.
"I don’t know what it is, I suppose it’s my heritage and how Ireland embraces artists."

Reilly is the fifth of six children and grew up in an Irish-Lithuanian household in Southwest Chicago, in a predominantly Irish neighborhood. Reilly's paternal great grandfather, along with various other family members, emigrated in the early 1900s from Ireland and set about building a life in Chicago.
