A local restaurant was delighted to get a very special visitor yesterday, iconic actor Miriam Margolyes.
The staff at the beautiful and historic River Café in Shannonbridge were chuffed to welcome the “lovely Miriam Margolyes” and “she made the day for all our Harry Potter fans,” the restaurant said on social media.
Miriam, who starred in such films as Harry Potter, is currently going on the road in Ireland filming a new TV show with Dublin Senator Lynn Ruane.
Senator Ruane, who hosts the On The Margins podcast, shared a short video of the two setting off on their road trip on Monday, with Margoyles giving a shoutout to the senator’s hometown of Tallaght.
The pair have embarked on the road trip to explore the life of playwright and Abbey Theatre founder Lady Gregory, the Irish Examiner is reporting.
