The baby from The Snapper went to see the play of The Snapper on its opening night
Is that a baby, or a turkey?
One of Ireland's greatest films of the last 30 years has been made into a highly-anticipated play which saw its opening night in Dublin on Wednesday.
Roddy Doyle's famed story about a young Irish woman who becomes pregnant, resulting in a guessing game as to the identity of the father, was turned into a movie by Stephen Frears back in 1993 and since being released, it's a bonafide cult-classic.
This week sees the second instalment of Roddy Doyle’s celebrated Barrytown Trilogy world premiere at the Gate Theatre, and joining the crowds of fans on its opening night, was none other than the cherub from the film itself.
Howth-native Aisling Conlan, who featured in the film version of the tale as baby Georgina, took to Twitter on Wednesday evening to share the news that she was checking out the play that gave her her first taste of fame.
Conlan was just three days old when she was cast as the newest addition to the Curley family.
These days the 25-year-old is an Irish Canoe Slalom athlete and describes herself as a ‘keen cyclist and coffee drinker’ on Twitter.
With regards to the play's cast, Simon Delaney will be playing Dessie and he's joined by Hilda Fay, Kate Gilmore, Simon O’Gorman and Amilia Stewart.
You can still book tickets to see one of Ireland's great works on stage, which is set to run well into August, right here.
