Burtonport magician Dylan Murray has demonstrated a new trick he has up his sleeve in his latest viral video.

Dylan asked Darren Duffy in Black’s XL in Letterkenny to think of the name of a football player.

Incredibly, Dylan was able to predict the number of letters in the footballer’s first name, and the second letter of the footballer’s name – before revealing the footballer’s full name!

Taking inspiration from mentalists such as Derren Brown, this 18-year-old Donegal Dynamo is fast becoming one of the most well known and revered magicians in Ireland.

Dylan’s remarkable mixture of mentalism and illusions are a breath of fresh air to the entertainment business as he brings his own unique style and an abundance of charisma to each and every performance.

Dylan’s videos have been viewed over 200,000 times on social media over the past few months, with this newest video being viewed an extraordinary 27,000 times since its publication last week.

Speaking to Donegal Woman, Dylan says; “There’s a lot of incredibly talented magicians all over the world, but in my opinion I take my biggest inspiration in the art from a man called Derren Brown with being an amazing performer, showman, and entertainer.

“I’ve been developing brand new techniques on how to perform these sort of effects and illusions with the mind, and over the past few months it’s really amazing to watch and also is very fascinating!

“The reactions and support I’ve been receiving have been incredible. I’ve also been working on a very special project of my own; a new stunt which I will be releasing more details on over on my Facebook page in the coming weeks.”
