Just entering but I can't possibly divulge my location (although it's obvious from my posting history)

My hometown is also home to 2 famous Hollywood actors, the first being Maureen O'Sullivan, the first "Jane" in the Tarzan movies & mother of Mia Farrow. The 2nd is Chris O'Dowd, who needs little introduction these days.

Brendan Gleeson is a familiar sight on the streets of Boyle, as he has a holiday home nearby.

The Clancy Brothers emigrated to America from Co. Tipperary to find work but soon realised how popular their music was over there
