Offaly native Sean McLoughlin, better known as Jacksepticeye, made an appearance on Friday night's Late Late Show with Ryan Tubridy on RTE.

The 28-year-old spoke of having over 18 million YouTube subscribers and making a career out of his video game commentary episodes. 

Jacksepticeye posts videos of himself playing and commentating on his favourite video games.

His energetic and brash style struck a chord with other gamers and he now enjoys a huge following across the globe.

His online name comes from a nickname made up for him by his schoolmates after he suffered an eye injury.
