Superstar singer Susan Boyle stunned people across Inishowen this weekend when she made a surprise visit to the peninsula.

The Britain’s Got Talent star visited a popular restaurant in the area before attending 12.30pm Mass at the Oratory in Buncrana on Sunday.

Inishowen couple Neil and Helen Doherty were enjoying dinner at the Lake of Shadows, Buncrana, on Saturday night when Neil noticed the celebrity guest.

“I was so excited to see her. I didn’t want to disturb her but I felt I just had to congratulate her on her success. I told her how much I admired her mastery of singing, her control, and thanked her for bringing so much enjoyment to people. She was absolutely lovely, so friendly and casual. It was wonderful to meet her.”

The singer also visited the Halfway House, Burnfoot, on Saturday, and enjoyed a sandwich and a glass of Guinness.
