Star of Enniskillen pub’s viral Christmas advert reflects on new-found fame: ‘Unbelievable’

The star of an Enniskillen pub’s viral Christmas advert has refleced on his new-found fame following the release of the John Lewis-style clip.

Martin McManus appeared in a festive video for Charlie’s Bar as a lonely elderly man seen placing flowers on a grave and being ignored by passers-by.

The tear-jerker takes a positive turn when he makes friends with a couple in the Co Fermanagh pub.

“I think it’s very important people keep an eye out for the elderly and the lonely,” he said.
