Just one day shy of 90 years to the day that Michael Collins was shot dead at Béal na mBláth, the woman that played a lead role in the Neil Jordan film that brought the lost leader of the Irish revolution to the silver screen made a whistle stop tour of the county capital of Ennis on Monday.
Forty-four year old Julia Roberts, who won an Oscar for her role in Erin Brockovich in 2000 and rose to stardom in Pretty Woman, played Kitty Kiernan in Michael Collins movie that was filmed in Ireland in 1996. Ms Roberts spent much or her time in Ennis in Tony Honan Antiques in Abbey Street in Ennis.
She has been holidaying in Ireland over the past week in the west of Ireland, with her husband Daniel Moder and their three children, Henry (5), twins Finn and Hazel (3).
