Subo reveals fondness for the Black Stuff

SuBo posed with fans after going for lunch at the Halfway House

SUSAN Boyle has revealed a soft spot for Irish stout after popping into a pub on the Emerald Isle.

Wearing a fur coat, the Britain’s Got Talent star made a bee-line for the bar at the Halfway House in Burnfoot, Co Donegal – and ordered Guinness.

Customers were “shocked” when the singer turned up at the village pub on Sunday afternoon.

But the easy-going singer delighted them by posing for pictures and signing autographs before settling down to lunch.

After eating her sandwich and downing half a pint of Guinness, SuBo continued on a tour of the area.

Martina Long, the sister of the pub’s owner, told an Irish newspaper: “We went straight down to the bar when we got a call to say Susan Boyle had come in.

“She was lovely. She had a sandwich and a half pint of Guinness and chatted away to everyone. She signed autographs and stood for photos. She was very nice.

“Word got about pretty quickly and within minutes the crowd in the bar had doubled.”


The singer, who was also wearing a white cable-knit jumper and green scarf, toured the Inishowen peninsula with two other women and a man.

They later dropped into Lake of Shadows Hotel, 11 miles away in the town of Buncrana, for dinner.

Breedge Doherty, the hotel manager: “She was chatting away to people in the bar and was very nice to everyone.”

The weekend trip is not the first time SuBo has paid a surprise visit to Ireland.

Last August cabbie Michael Jennings picked the star up in Galway before taking her on a 60 mile trip to meet his mother.

SuBo had been shopping before a show but was only too happy to drive to Knock in Co Mayo to surprise Margaret.

Susan has visited Knock – home to the famous Marian Shrine – on organised pilgrimages before she became an international celebrity. Both her parents were from Donegal.
