Michael Fassbender goes back to school in the Sem

Michael Fassbender says it was a privilege to go back to his old secondary school in Killarney this week.

The Oscar-nominated actor told pupils at  St Brendan’s College that he may not have gotten into acting if it hadn’t been for one of his old teachers.

The Hollywood star is competing in this weekend’s International Rally of the Lakes.

Michael advised students to follow their ambitions and take pride in their work.

He admitted it was slightly intimidating to return to the Sem.
