Josh Pray criticism
American comedian Josh Pray says he's taking a break from posting Irish-themed videos after getting abuse online.
Firstly he started off posting videos about the GAA to his 175,000 YouTube subscribers.
He was then invited here by Tourism Ireland to experience the All-Ireland Final between Dublin and Kerry.

But although a lot of people were enjoying his take on the GAA, there was also some anger.
It was due to him getting a free ticket - when so many people missed out.
Some of the comments online turned nasty - and Josh now says he won't be posting about Irish culture for a few weeks.
I'm horrified that this man, who touched so many people with his infectious enthusiasm about GAA sports, has been made to feel that he had to write this post.
It's not okay. pic.twitter.com/Cb3WnxPHfr

Fáilte Ireland says bringing Josh over was a success - and that they'll continue to look for new ways to promote the country abroad.
