POP STAR Una Healy made it a Saturday to remember for hundreds of fans as she dropped into Greenes Shoes at the Crescent Shopping Centre in Dooradoyle.

The singer/songwriter was the star attraction at a meet and greet event to mark the company’s 80th anniversary.

From just before 1.30pm, fans of all ages began arriving at the store to chat with Ms Healy or to have their photos taken with her. Some even offered the 37-year-old presents of Easter eggs and flowers.


Greenes Shoes, which opened its store in Limerick 18 years ago, is a stockist of Una Healy’s range of shoes.

“We’ve got flats, we’ve got daytime shoes, going out shoes and they’re actually really comfortable and stylish and I like the combination of both,” Una told the Limerick Leader.


Meanwhile, during an appearance on the Late Late Show on Friday the Thurles woman, who is dating former Limerick hurler David Breen, said she has no regrets about the ending of her marriage to rugby player Ben Foden.

“It all ended last July, and it’s just kind of rebuilding my life as a single mum now. The thing is I don't regret ever meeting him because I would not have made those beautiful children if it wasn't for him. I can never look back and say it was a mistake but that part of the relationship is over now,” she said.

While not going into details about her relationship with David Breen, Una joked with presenter Ryan Tubridy that she has “shopped local” with her new beau.

David is from Limerick which is about 45 minutes from Thurles and over in England we live 45 minutes from each other as well so we are always 45 minutes from each other,” she said.

While Una was born at University Maternity Hospital Limerick she insists she is “totally a Tipp woman” and will be backing the Premier County during this summer’s hurling championship.

“I always have to support my Tipperary of course you know, so up Tipp,” she laughed.
