We're down to just hours now, as we await the clash between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI.

Patriots quarter-back Tom Brady is on the cusp of making history tonight. A win tonight will entitle him to a fifth Super Bowl ring which would make him only the second man in NFL history to reach that feat alongside Charley Haley, and the first quarter-back to achieve it.

The action kicks off at 11.30pm Irish time.

Not everyone can make it to Houston for the game, but it has become something of a tradition in Ireland to endure the lack of sleep and watch the magical event unfold.

There's also a half-time show headlined by Lady Gaga to look forward to as well.

Here's how the Irish fans will be enjoying this year's Super Bowl.
