[A person in a blue shirt Description generated with very high confidence] Katherine Lynch is one of Ireland’s foremost comedians, TV Personality, and Entertainer and comes straight off the dancefloor after a very successful journey on Dancing with the Stars Ireland where she survived until week 10.
Katherine made the leap to TV when she was spotted as traveller character Singing Bernie Walsh on RTÉ’s comedy programmer The Unbelievable Truth. Since then she has brought us the three-part comedy show Working Girls and the twelve -part series, including a Christmas Special, WonderWomen for RTÉ Television, which introduced viewers to her new larger than life personae - working class goddess Sheila Chic and Irish country, sports-loving lesbian Liz Hurley. This was followed by a nationwide sell-out tour culminating in sixteen nights in Dublin’s Vicar Street, followed by a chat show entitled Wagons Den (Mrs Merton Style). She has played comedy roles in plays in Ireland and has recently played the iconic Miss Hannigan at the National Concert Hall in Limerick.
Katherine has managed to strike a chord with Irish audiences, establishing a loyal fan-base and a very successful career both on TV and stage.
