A DEDICATED Bruce Springsteen fan told of her delight after the rock legend told her to sit down beside him in a Dublin pub.
Springsteen, who is in the middle of a five-date tour of Ireland with the E Street Band, was enjoying a sup in the Long Hall in South Great George's Street as he dodged the rain.
Music store worker Angie Sheehan (31), from Coolock, said a friend texted her to say the rocker had just walked in the door.
"My boss at Tower Records in Wicklow Street just let me go. I went over and said, 'I'm sorry for intruding on your conversation, but I'm a massive fan'," said Angie, who added that her hero was extremely courteous and invited her sit down.
"As he was leaving he came over and said, 'Goodbye sweetie'," she said.
Springsteen was drinking a pint of Guinness and a Red Breast whiskey.
"He was so nice and polite. His friend took a photograph for me," said Angie. "I told him he'd made my year."
'The Boss' was also spotted enjoying a bit of time off the stage at K-Bowl bowling alley in Kilkenny.
He is due to be back in action today and tomorrow night in Kilkenny as he wraps up his Wrecking Ball European Tour.
