Now Doire­ann is bank­ing on more suc­cess

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - OUT AND ABOUT -

RIS­ING tele­vi­sion star Doire­ann Gar­rihy is bank­ing on her tal­ents to make her rich. The blog­ger, who has her own dig­i­tal se­ries with RTÉ, opened a busi­ness ac­count this week. The Castle­knock na­tive, left, has been a break­out star on the com­edy cir­cuit as her un­can­nily ac­cu­rate im­pres­sions have turned her into some­thing of a star over the past year. She had some suc­cess as her first se­ries The Doire­ann Project, a sketch show in which she im­per­son­ates var­i­ous fa­mil­iar Irish stars, ran on the RTÉ Player ear­lier this year. She is cur­rently film­ing a sec­ond se­ries. The broad­caster told RTÉ En­ter­tain­ment she wants to break from on­line into on­screen: ‘With the stuff I’ve done on­line, I never ac­tu­ally sit down and write a script. I’m do­ing what I ini­tially wanted to do but in such a round­about way.’
