STEPHEN Fry, possibly the most English celebrity ever, has been waffling on about Ireland being his spiritual home after receiving a medal of honorary patronage from Trinity College and making a guest appearance in ‘Ros na Run’.
Fry said the award was “one of the great honours of my life” and spoke to the audience about the university life of (surprise, surprise) Oscar Wilde.
He also talked about James Joyce, saying Ulysses was the book he continued to read throughout his life. He can’t be that smart then, it only took BBM a couple of weeks to finish it.
His guest turn in ‘Ros na Run’ was filmed last Monday when he played a lost tourist who stumbled into the local pub in the Irish language soap.
We’re sure viewing figures will shoot through the roof.
