It appears geography is not the Western Canadian Rose's special talent.

Sinead McGahern may have burned a few bridges with the Irish public after she implied Ireland was part of the United Kingdom.

Explaining to Daitií Ó Se how many relations she had over this side of the Atlantic, she said: "23 first cousins in the UK. Three are currently in England and the other twenty here are in Ireland."

Twitter users were quick to correct her, of course.

She may struggle to live that one down for a while.
