Kilkenny is in for a treat!

Zoe Lyons is an award-winning comedian who was born in Ireland but has lived in the UK for most of her life.

Last year, Zoe made a BBC documentary called Passport Paddy, where she analysed her Irishness and explored the rise of Brits rediscovering their own Irish heritage due to Brexit.

"British people have desperately dugout their grandparents birth certificates", she laughs as she chats to Dermot and Dave.

And her faith in the Cabinet is dwindling more each day, "we are now being ruled by people with lots of confidence and no ability". We cannot argue with that point.

Lyons has some great quips about the UK's plans to withdraw and will be delighting Kilkenny audiences at this year's Cat Laughs festival with more of her hilarious analogies and observations.
