What's the main thing Irish people always miss when they move abroad?

The food of course!

Whether you're just craving a bit of Dairygold for your toast or a good aul chicken fillet roll after a night out, odds are you could be tempted to go home just for the grub alone. 

Well a chipper in Australia is keeping the Irish over there VERY happy and also trying out some mad recipes.

The Traditional Chip Shop in Sydney is run by an Irish couple and they are bringing all the goodness and grease of an Irish chipper to the outback. 

And apart from a good ol' helping of beer battered fish and chips, this chip shop is getting also experimental. 

Some of the quirky items on offer? Well, firstly you can get a hearty helping of battered black and white pudding. You know, if you want a flavour of an Irish breakfast. 

Also on offer is a deep fried jam sandwich for dessert or you can always go for the infamous battered Mars Bar. 

The shop is owned by Meath couple Will and Suzanne Dolan who wanted to create a traditional Irish chip shop in Australia but with a few twists. 

"So many people out here miss the taste of food from a traditional chip shop so we were just waiting to find the right building in the right place."

"[We] worked in a chipper back home when we were younger. Will came out here in 1998 and I followed him out in 2009. It’s been something that he’s wanted to do for a long time," said Suzanne.

And what would no traditional Irish chipper be complete without? The classic curry chip of course. 



The Jenner sisters are usually warmly welcomed by their loyal fans, but not in their most recent appearance. 

The sisters were visiting Westfield shoping centre in Sydney, Austraila, today to promote their clothing line for the brand Forever New

While doing so, TMZ reports that a woman standing in the crowd threw eggs at them. Yep, she tried to egg the Jenner sisters. 

She missed Kendall and Kylie (narrowly) and the local police had to step in to diffuse the situation. 

A source from the local police station in Sydney said that the unidentified woman was standing on the second floor of the shopping centre.

When she caught a glimpse of the reality stars, she began to throw the eggs and then added a few tomatoes into the mix (a few spinach leaves and dressing would have made the perfect salad). 

The woman missed her targets though, and the food ended up hitting the stage and splattered onto fans standing near-by. 

The rest of the event went off without a hitch, and Kendall and Kylie were able to launch their new line successfully.



They've just wrapped up an exclusive media lunch in Sydney – and suffice to say that Kendall and Kylie are causing a SERIOUS stir in Australia.

The sisters only jetted Down Under yesterday, but already they're attracting flocks of keen as mustard fans who are eager to follow their every move as they promote their just-released collection for Forever New.

And luckily, the reality TV duo – especially Kylie – have been documenting their Aussie experiences online with particular gusto. 

Indeed, the younger Ms Jenner has been Snapchatting and Instagramming whenever she's found a spare moment.

In one clip, hoards of teenage girls can be seen gathering around the sisters' car, while a second video posted by Forever New shows the rapturous welcome the girls were given at Westfield Plaza shopping centre. 

Understandably, 20-year-old model Kendall and 18-year-old Kylie both wore items from their range for the Westfield launch: the former in a pretty patterned keyhole playsuit, while the latter opted for a sleek white skater dress with a mesh panel on the front.

The items are priced at €115 and €135 respectively from the label's website and yes – it ships to Ireland.

The famous family members also enjoyed a boat ride on the city's river – and with Sydney basking in 22C sunshine, we bet it was a wholly pleasant afternoon out. 

An Instagram photo shared by Kylie and lovingly captioned "I'll always be here for you my sister," has now notched up 1million likes. It shows the pair resting on their boat's decking.

As to be expected, neither Ms Jenners are travelling light. As well as a serious haul of luggage, Anna McClelland from Aussie fashion website buro247.com.au shared a telling Instagram snap of the pair at the media lunch.

"Lunching with these two ladies," she wrote, adding that they had "the most insane entourage I've ever seen".

We wouldn't expect anything less!


Things got a bit cheeky on Prince Charles's recent visit to Sydney. A photographer snapped a photo of Janine Kirk – chief executive of the Prince's Charities Australia – appearing to pad the prince's butt.

The Australian press had a bit of a field day with it, not least of all because the royals allegedly have a no-touching policy (anyone remember the Lebron James/ Kate Middleton slip-up?).

Janine is notably embarrassed about the incident, telling the Daily Telegraph, "I don't like the way this is going, it's rather silly, it's not on his bum. 

"It was a room of about 130 people. He was being engaged as he always is and so he was being moved through the crowd." 

Right, but you were still leading him around the room via his bum?


Described as "funky, warm, hipster, but also family-orientated," a brand-new bar is about to open its doors in Sydney's Dulwich Hill area. 

So what's the big deal, you ask? Well, this is not any old hipster-friendly establishment, no siree. 

In fact, it's a specialist NUTELLA eatery which will serve up an array of chocolatey, hazelnutty, sugary wonders.

And yes, frankly, we're already seriously considering selling a kidney and using the proceeds to hop on a 17,250km flight Down Under. 

Offering "every Nutella product you can think of," the owners have already said they reckon the quirky likes of Nutella cruffins, Nutella banana bread, Nutella macarons, Nutella brownies, Nutella icecream and Nutella cheesecakes will be among their biggest sellers, although the more standard Nutella crepes, waffles, and pancakes are sure to be a hit too. 

The concept has been kicked off by the same folk who run the city's popular Foodcraft Espresso And Bakery

Recently, the cafe caused an on-line storm when its €6.50-a-pop Tella Ball milkshake – a mouth-watering mix of three scoops of Nutella and vanilla ice cream topped with a Nutella-infused doughnut – went viral. 

Understandably, the Tella Ball will also be available in the new cafe. For those of us not based in Sydney, SHEmazing! has rounded up the following Instagram snaps… now let's all take a sugar-infused moment to dare to dream…













Even though Andrew Garfield is known for playing superhero Spiderman, the Hollywood star proved he is a hero off-screen as well.

While Garfield was out promoting “The Amazing Spiderman 2” in Sydney, Australia the actor made some time to volunteer with Hunter Connect, at an event teaching children with autism to surf.

Garfield helped one young boy surf and cheered him on when he rode the waves on a Spider-Man surfboard.

The actor also signed autographs and posed for photos with fans, as well as catching a few waves himself.




It’s not every day that you have the famous Gerard Butler crashing a hen party.

But lucky bride to be, Maja Nogic managed to meet the Scottish actor after she spotted the star at Sydney docks last weekend.

After posing in some pictures with the bride to be, Butler asked could he join the group: “Is this a hen party? Can I join? We’re going to dance a little bit, drink a little bit.”

One of the friends of the bride said they got “the shock of their lives” when they saw him and initially confused the famous star for a stripper.

Gerard is in Sydney preparing to shoot for Alex Proya’s film Gods of Egypt.



This is awful!

Sarah Hyland, who plays Hayley Dunphy in Modern Family left a party in Sydney early after being inappropriately touched by a fan.

The party was being held in Sydney as that is where the cast are filming at the moment and the incident happened as Sarah posed outside for fans and signed autographs.

A man is said to have grabbed the actress’ breast after asking for a photo to which Sarah screamed: “Don’t touch me there!” and pointing angrily at the fan before her security intervened.

The poor girl is then said to have left early and very upset. She took to her Twitter account to voice her anger at the incident and apologise to her fans for leaving early, which we are sure they understood!

What a horrible thing to happen to a woman especially as all eyes and cameras are on her.
