Drico is supposed to be rude. Friends were in Kielys a while back after a match and asked him nicely if he would step into the photo and his response was less than cordial. it would appear he does not always have time for his fans.

O'Connor.

Yea, I'd expect as much. He's good of a Saturday night though.


hes nervous of a Saturday night and the best way to overcome that is to belittle his guests.

I was gonna say Twink, but that assumes that she actually is a celeb either way she was pig ignorant any time I did meet her (also not the bightest).

Also met Shane Horgan, very ignorant guy (especially compared to any other members if the Irish team I've met).

Haha, oh Brian. I read an article where Amy was saying that they were trying to keep their invitation to the wedding low key, because they didn't want it to seem like they were showing off that they were invited. Yeah right! It's been all over the newspapers for weeks.

But - back to topic - rude celebs. Haven't really encountered any.

I think this whole thread goes to show that everyone is human and has good and bad days. Just because someone is famous doesnt make them public property.

for many these people are role models and when in public they have certain responsibilities.

True, they want their peace and quiet, but they also enjoy basking in the limelight when it suits and the media attention they have courted has been largely beneficial for them.

Patrick Bergin.

Here he is in his younger days

Most famous for Sleeping with the Enemy with Julia Roberts or that Harrison Ford film, Patriot Games

one of the more succusful actors from Ireland
And boy does he know it!

Lived in Tipperary and regularly stayed in the local hotel where I was porter.
Constant bitching to management over everything, rude to staff and fond of the "do you know who I am".
We knew exactly who he was but denied it, "sorry sir, I don't know who you are but I hope you are happy as the resident of x room. Anything I can do for you?"

I witnessed Packie Bonner been incredibly rude to a group of people who approached him for an autograph in a Dublin hotel.


Used to be in a Celtic Supporter Club and we made regular trips.
Often saw Packie in the airport as I believe he is a coach. Not sure if he still does the coaching.
He'd ignore kids who wanted autographs and was not exactly friendly to anyone who came up to say hello

In contrast, Mick McCarthy, total legend. Saw him a few times and he'd see our colours and chat away with us as a former Celtic player. He's answer anything and this was back when he Ireland manager. Took photos with us. Lovely genuine guy and I've been rooting for him and his current club since

....was in a restaurant in a hotel last year in dublin the day after going to a Bruce Springsteen gig. My other half spots Bono sitting with someone at a table behind us. I had my back to them. OH wanted to go over and ask Bono for an autograph. I was mortified and was saying there's no way, and not to go up to him in a restaurant etc etc.

Anyway when Bono left the table to go to the bathroom, up she walks to his friend and asks if he thought Bono would mind signing an autograph. Friend says he didnt think he'd mind. OH comes back to the table and we continue eating.

5 mins later Bono comes over, signs autographs, has pictures taken and chats away for a few minutes. We say thanks a lot and continue eating. Laters when we are leaving the hotel, bono and his friend are leaving too. Outside were a bunch of screaming fans shouting "Hey Bruce" and the like to Bono's friend.

First time I've ever known her to not be able to say a word! My excuse was that I had my back to them and didnt see him. She had no excuse being a huge Bruce fan! Both very nice as it turned out.


That story has been repeated so many times it's an urban legend at this stage
