The Carlow teacher who wanted George Clooney to quieten down

Kathleen O'Rourke must be the unlikeliest candidate to be hob-nobbing with the stars at tomorrow's Oscar ceremony in Hollywood. The 30-year-old junior-infants teacher turned comedian from Carlow will be on the red carpet, sparkling in diamonds worth a six-figure sum and a designer frock by Su Yung, courtesy of her ingenious comedic creation, Granny O'Grimm.

She'll also be hoping to run into George Clooney again, with whom she made sure to get her picture taken at the Oscar Nominee lunch last month.
