She isn't the first person to contact the wrong person on Twitter, but at least Home and Away star Lynne McGranger could see the funny side of her mistake.

Better known to Irish viewers as Irene Roberts in the popular television series Home and Away, the Australian actress is also a big sports fan.

A self-confessed cricket nut is also a keen follower of the Sydney Swans, the club where Kerry star Tommy Walsh spent three years during his time Down Under.

Walsh returned home last year and is attempting to force his way into Eamonn Fitzmaurice's starting fifteen, but Roberts tweeted earlier this week that she missed the Irishman's presence in the AFL.

"hey Tommy how's it going? Miss seeing your cheeky mug around the grounds. Hope you're well and happy xxx," she posted on her account, but unfortunately it was to a fellow Kerryman with the same name.

It lead to a lot of light-hearted comments, with one Twitter user suggesting that Irene was "back on the grog", in reference to her battle with alcoholism on the show.
