Mrs Brown’s Boys’ star Eilish O’Carroll has hit back at critics who hate the Irish sitcom.


 The O’Carroll clan have become regular features on our TV and has proven to be quite divisive, with a loyal fan base counteracting the haters.

 And Eilish, who plays Winnie McGoogan, is more than happy with that, and says that she still loves the show despite what people say.

Speaking to the Irish Mirror, Eilish said: ‘The early ones, I watch them now and I still sit and laugh, and I know what’s going to come. Mrs Brown isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.’

 Understanding that comedy is selective, she added: ‘There’s no in between with Mrs Brown – you either love it or hate it. There’s no, “Oh, I could take it or leave it.”

’ ‘It’s holding its position after all these years and I hope it still does,’ she added. ‘It’s my bread and butter. ‘I love every minute of it and it’s great to be in an environment where you make people feel good and laugh.’

Eilish is currently trying her luck on the new series of Dancing With the Stars Ireland, trading in Winnie’s nightgown and hairnet for something a bit more glam. 


Viewers were left stunned at her new glitzy transformation, and she’s been keeping herself busy in training as she goes for the glitterball. 

Meanwhile, Eilish’s real-life brother Brendan – who plays Agnes in Mrs Brown’s Boys – has revealed plans for a brand new sitcom, based on life as an Irish peacekeeper in Lebanon.

 On top of that, Brendan’s son Danny – who plays Buster on the show, revealed he had written a script for a new movie focusing on his character’s friendship with Dermot.The original Mrs Brown’s Boys: D’Movie brought in £23million at the box office when it was released in 2014.


If that wasn’t enough, the whole gang will be touring the UK and Ireland with Mrs Brown D’Musical – so there’s plenty for fans to be keeping an eye on ahead of their return to telly next Christmas. 

How does this family fit it all in?!
