If you're in Limerick, then keep an eye out because it's rumoured that Elton John is in the area.
His €28 million yacht was spotted in Limerick City Docks, as well as reportedly being spotted in Cobh and Dingle over the weekend.
According to Limerick Leader, Elton's yacht is called the Wabi Sabi and it's Wi-Fi connection was picked up in the area too.
Many believe it is indeed the singer, and although it hasn't been confirmed, he was playing the Marquee in Cork last week.
We have to admit, it's a pretty sweet ride to travel around Ireland in, and we're kinda jealous at how good his Wi-Fi connection is.
