Scotty T meets some Tralee ladies in Hennessy’s back in August 2014.

TRALEE people watching Celebrity Big Brother Final on TV3 tonight might recognise the champion from a wild night in town not so long ago.

Scotty T, real name Scott Timlin, of popular TV series ‘Geordie Shore’, won the competition coming out of the house to wild cheering from fans and watched by millions at home.

It was fairly wild too for the MTV show’s star when he spent a night in Tralee back in August 2014.

Scotty was in town for a youth disco and called to Hennessy’s Bar for a drink.


Ger Hennessy of the Castle Street bar told us at the time that “his manager just said to us if we supply him with free drink he’ll stay for the night.”

“So we put the word out on Facebook that he was in the pub and people, mainly women, started to come down to see him,” he said.

“He was a really cool guy, very down to earth and more than happy to pose for photos all night. People were coming up to him the whole time to take selfies and he was really good with them,” Ger said.

“He’s a real ladies man, the girls were all over him,” said Ger.

“I took Scotty on in a Jager-Bomb competition, I beat him in the first one, but he had me in the next two. He turned to me and said ‘don’t ever take a Geordie on in a drinking game’,” Ger said.

“Him and his manager came in at 10pm and stayed until closing. They actually had no place to stay so I sorted them out with accommodation,” said Ger.

He’ll be an even bigger attraction if he comes back now. Better book a hotel though Scotty.
