Derry Girls star Siobhan McSweeney has been enjoying her trip out west, Galway style

Siobhan McSweeney has been showing her love for Supermac’s.

Derry Girls star Siobhan McSweeney is in Galway at the moment. There as part of the Galway 2020 celebrations, she’ll partake in the Wild Atlantic Women series of events organised in honour of International Women’s Day.

Beloved for her portrayal of the hilarious Sister Michael on Derry Girls, Siobhan has proven time and time again that she is just as gas in real life -this time delighting fans with her antics out west.

It seems that the rumour mill has been spurning out “fake news”, saying that the Corkwoman was spotted tucking into some chips at Supermac’s in Salthill.

Hoping to put the whole thing to bed, Siobhan took to Twitter to say:

“Someone is spreading a dreadful rumour that I have been spotted in SuperMacs in Salthill eating cheesy garlic chips by myself. And I’ve definitely not dropped cheese down my top. Lies. #FakeNews.”

A likely story…

Judging by the selfie she posted in the replies, we’re going to take her claims that the whole thing is false with a grain of salt. Pun intended.

Fans were in full support of her dinner choice though, with one writing:

“Enjoy your chips, supermacs are the best!”, while another wrote:

“Jesus Christ Siobhán you’re living the god damn dream”.

Glad to see she’s taking in the culture.

Siobhan McSweeney will be the first of several women to take to the stage this weekend, joined by the likes of Irish writer Susan McKay as well as Handmaid’s Tale author Margaret Atwood.
