One time participant in Ireland's version of The Secret Millionaire - John Fitzpatrick - was in Dundalk on Wednesday evening, but there was nothing subtle about the car he was driving.

Fitzpatrick was driving a stunning Bentley Bentayga, which would set you back in the region of €450,000. 

The New York hotel tycoon met with O’Hanlon Park Boxing Club's Paul Taafe and number of local people in McGeoughs on Crowe Street.

Fitzpatrick and Taafe met during the filming of The Secret Millionaire series back in 2011. Mr Fitzpatrick continues making regular visits to Dundalk and has pledged ongoing support to the Boxing club.

He was born in Dublin, and with his father, brothers and sisters worked in many of the Fitzpatrick Hotel Group’s Irish hotels in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
