Is Mr Clooney right now steering his yacht from… Cork to Kerry?

On its way to Dingle via Kinsale and Balitmore, one rather spectacular yacht supposedly named Air has been spotted leaving Cork Harbour.

At 80metres in length and boasting four storeys as well as a helipad, it costs a cool €750,000 to stay on each week, according to local radio station, Red FM.

And – most excitingly of all – George Clooney is widely rumoured to be on board.

George, who's family emigrated from Co. Kilkenny after The Famine, was also spotted in the area back in 2012 when he stayed in Cobh for a short springtime break.

Earlier this year, he hinted that a trip to his ancestral home was in the offing.

He told the Irish Independent in January he was “embarrassed” that, despite his roots, he’d never had the chance to visit Ireland properly.

“I’ve been talking about going there for years,” he added. “And Bono has been trying to get me to do a bike ride around Ireland with him.

“I’m definitely going to make a visit this summer.”

Just last week, the 54-year-old took Amal, his wife of eight-months, home to his native Kentucky.

Mr and Mrs Clooney were back for a family reunion — and their presence understandably sent locals into an excited frenzy.

A month ago, it was furthermore revealed that human rights lawyer Amal would be in Belfast during June to meet some of the 14 men who claim they were tortured by the British Army in Northern Ireland in the 1970s.

She was brought on to the case by Belfast-based solicitors Kevin R Winters and Co.

George and Amal married in a glitzy €10m celebration in Venice last September. They had been dating for year prior to their nuptials, and were engaged in April 2014.
