Ballintubber woman, Fiona Sirr, who started posting music videos on social media during flooding in the area earlier this year, has earned a worldwide following on Facebook and YouTube during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Videos on the Fiona Sirr Music page on Facebook have received over 545,000 views from over 100 countries around the world. Fiona said she is still coming to terms with her new-found fame.
“I just can’t get my head around it, it’s mad really. To think that this all started as a bit of craic during the flooding in Ballintubber earlier this year and now it’s reaching so many people around the world, and I’ve even brought out a DVD! I’m delighted that the videos are so popular and hopefully they’re providing a few smiles,” she told the Roscommon People.
