Pretty Woman visits Louisburgh
HOLLYWOOD royalty visited Louisburgh over the weekend, when ‘Pretty Woman’ star Julia Roberts was in town with her young family for a break. The actress, one of the most recognisable women on the planet - went quietly about her way on Sunday, when she brought her children to the beach at Old Head - stopping off along the way for an ice cream at the Old Head Cafe and Shop.
The rumour mill was in overdrive as to what the star of movies such as Erin Brockovich, Ocean’s Eleven, Notting Hill and Sleeping with the Enemy was doing in west Mayo, and where she was staying, with unconfirmed reports mentioning the Delphi area, as well as a house near Louisburgh belonging to Daniel Day Lewis’ sister Tamasin.
By all accounts the Academy award-winning actress went relatively unnoticed during her appearance at Old Head, with locals and other visitors to the area choosing to leave her in peace. She was also spotted shopping in Louisburgh on Sunday.
