Irish music icon Shane MacGowan was spotted letting his hair down with superstar actors Johnny Depp and Robert Sheehan in Dublin earlier this week.

The Pogues legend was spotted celebrating with the pair, as they raised a glass to the release of the hit documentary on his life, Crock of Gold - A Few Rounds With Shane MacGowan.  

MacGowan was spotted chatting with global megastar Johnny Depp and Love/Hate star Robert Sheehan at Dublin's Light House Cinema.

The documentary itself was produced by MacGowan's close friend Depp. It will include interviews from the likes of Nick Cave, Elvis Costelloe, Bono, Bobby Gillespie, Michael D Higgins and Gerry Adams.


Speaking on Doireann Garrihy's podcast, Robert Sheehan who is known for playing Darren Treacy on Irish hit crime drama Love/Hate, revealed that he had to call on Shane MacGowan to get him unbarred from a pub in London.

“I got barred out of this pub a few years ago in North London... unjustified!", he said. “It was The Boogaloo, which is synonymous with the Irish community over in London". 

He continued,  “Brilliant pub, with loads of Irish sessions going on in there. Myself and Greg were involved in a lock-in one night there". 

“We got talking to someone and I had a about a third of a pint left. It was three o’clock in the morning and they were kind of fixing to kick us out. And she nicked my pint and I was like ‘C’mon give us that back’". 

“And just as we start arguing over the pint, the owner walked past and because it was with the barmaid and he was not in a good mood, he went ‘Right, you...out!’

“Then there was some name calling that went on. I’ll put my hands up, right, I was a bit drunk.

“I was like ‘Yeah butter bean, don’t want to be in your s*** pub anyways’.

“I didn’t behave myself very well.

“Then I met Shane MacGowan a year and a half later, we were doing this gig in Dublin Castle about history and songs.

“I was telling him how I got kicked out by the owner and Shane was like ‘Ah we can sort that out, we’ll rectify that’.

“So me and Shane left an answering message on Gerry’s phone and Shane was like ‘Ah he’s a nice kid, let him back in the pub’.

“And sure enough Gerry (O’Boyle) sent back a message going ‘Ah listen Shane, it was just a misunderstanding, he’s welcome back anytime’.

“So yeah Shane MacGowan got me unbarred from a pub".
