A 53 year-old Newry woman who claims people regularly mistake her for her 22-year-old daughter is clearly a lying fantasist.
Claire Fatspatrick told Newry Spud:
“Although I’m more than twice her age, my amazing figure and youthful complexion mean that friends often mistake me for my daughter, Gráinne.
“Either that or they think we’re sisters. It happens all the time baah!”
However a family friend Mary Quinn told us:
“It never, ever, happens. Maybe once she asked me ‘do you think I look like our Gráinne?’ and I politely grunted.
“They might look similar from a distance. A considerable distance, like half a mile.”
A clearly pissed off Gráinne told Newry Spud:
“It’s true that the Oul Doll does borrow my clothes to look like me. However they’re always stretched to fuck when she gives them back. The bitch looks nothing like me.”
