Sofia's Sydney sojourn

Anna Coogan

ACTRESS Sofia Vergara turned heads recently when filming scenes for the sitcom Modern Family in Sydney.

It's a city which will surely be a popular destination for Irish travellers this year.

As a result of emigration, more young Irish people are heading to Australian shores – there has been a 30 per cent increase in the number of Irish people living Down Under in the last six years.

Figures from the Australian government show there are more than 76,000 Irish people living in Oz these days.

It explains the number of Irish expected to holiday in Australia this year to catch up with much-missed family and friends.

Popular tourist attractions in Sydney include the Sydney Opera House, Bondi Beach, Luna Park and Sydney Tower.

Colombian actress Sofia, 41, stole the limelight from her co-stars when they filmed scenes for the popular sitcom in Sydney's Botanical Gardens. The TV show's cast is also said to have enjoyed a scuba dive while working in Sydney.
