People are noticing an uncanny similarity between revolutionary leader Michael Collins and Olympic hero Paul O'Donovan. 

And you must admit there really is a striking resemblance between the pair.  

From their face shapes and bone structure to their dark hair, noses and mouths – they really look like they could be related! 

Even the Michael Collins Adventures parody account picked up on it and joined in. 


Props to Twitter user @ronanoflaherty for spotting this one:
