Pauline McLynn

Actress and author

Born in Sligo, the actress and author decided to pursue a career in acting on leaving university – since acting with all of the major Irish theatre companies. She began her television career on RTÉ’s Nothing to It and was spotted by actor Dermot Morgan. Scrap Saturday, a weekly satirical piece for radio, was born and Pauline played all the women in it. Pauline is probably best known as the enduring Mrs Doyle on Father Ted but her film roles include Far and Away, Angela’s Ashes and When Brendan Met Trudy. She is an author of ten books and member of the Board of Rough Magic Theatre Company, Dublin.
