Galway teenager meets her idol Ellen DeGeneres

“This is the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do cos you’re my idol.”

The old saying ‘if you don’t ask you don’t get’ is often overused. But for Eimear  O’Tuathail , 17, from Galway, asking resulted in a dream coming true and meeting her idol in California.

Eimear wrote a song for Ellen (which she loved) and she was invited onto the show to have a chat and perform the song.

She received a well-deserved standing ovation from the audience, before Ellen walked over to shock her once again.

The host gave Eimear a pink Starbucks drink, which you can’t get here, some  EOS lipbalm, and a $10,000 cheque for college!

Ask and you will receive, as they say!
