@lobo12325 How nice to meet you.Enjoyed the chat about Boondocks Saints. @BuachaillDana2 beautiful place.Nice people.Loved it. @Anto00001 I didn't know it was a woman.I could only see the legs and the big lens of the camera.I played at the Opera house in Cork last night.I had a great time.Great crowd,great theatre,great staff.Great to be back.The photographer from Killarney seems to have run to the media weeping about the big bad comedian who gave her a hard time.Boo Hoo.I met some lovely people after the gig in Killarney.We talked for ages,it was lovely.Some great fans of Boondocks Saints.In Killarney!,,I seem to have caused a little ripple on the Lakes of Killarney,by telling a photographer to get the Hell out of my eye line.No regrets. @katyroxaline I remember those nights in Bangor.I used to perform at the Tonic Cinema.Many a happy hour i spent there.

The gig I did tonight in Castlebar Co.Mayo,and the previous night in Galway,are the most satisfying gigs I have done in a long time.

Meeting Seamus Heaney is weird. It feels like meeting William Wordsworth and Bob Dylan at Dinner. It's nice to meet someone older than me.I had a meeting with Seamus Heaney in Dublin. He has translated some old Scottish fables,which I will read this week for animation on BBC.Just finished a week in Dublin. The Gaiety theatre is a real old jewellery box. What a great audience,I couldn't be happier.

Do Ya? @paulmcbride4 I remember the gig well Paul.You were a great crowd.The headmaster described himself as "The Wee Heedie"what a nice guy. @Ronjemin I start at the Riverside Concert Hall on the fifth of April.I think I do six there altogether.It's a good town,getting better. @TheBopper @craigyferg @mcgregor_ewan We could even do it in the dark,and you would still always know who was talking!Or black bag/John/Yoko @TheBopper @craigyferg @mcgregor_ewan @TheBopper What a line up of ruffians! Are you sure it isn't a fight you have in mind?All you need is an IPad, park bench,and Eric Idle.About the Waterboys. The Lake Isle of Innisfree will never be the same again.Mike Scott did it as a blues and just blew me out of my seat.I went to see The Waterboys at the Town Hall last night.They were amazing. The whole show was Yeats put to. Mike Scott's music.Happy me.

@clareoreilly81 I'm excited at the thoughjt of the two of you sitting tjere when I'm performing,thanks. @pat_pooka that's great news about the Opera House.If you see anyone from the houses. Tell them I said hello @diannehughes619 I'm Sorry about that,,there must have been a very good reason. @diannehughes619 @MollyPrintemps I remember the Cusicks well.I met one of the sisters at a McLean Family Do last year in Glasgow @grantmcfadzean I think I just look bored when I'm thinking. @Inkyworld I did it once before from the London Palladium a few years ago. @NickCapaldi It was great to do.I asked Van Morrison for permissioN to do it and he said OK.you should hear him do it with Chieftains. @KieranNicol25 Of couirse I will. @deacon6375 no,we had no scenes together. @Uchayethen00 I can only imagine that some difference must occur as it is shown,because it felt great at the time,sitting in the theatre.I had a great time at the Baftas Last night.Stephen Fry just gets better all the time.What a Host.

So far it looks as if I'm getting on my flight to London tonight.The snow seems to have calmed down to a blinding deluge. @Shelbafina Isn't posh the funniest word?Glad to be of help. @MoniqueDuBois85 I'm sorry,I seem to have read your tweet wrongly.Welcome back! @MoniqueDuBois85 I'm sorry if people are bothering you. Some people can be very thoughtless. I won't write to you again. @D60Celebration now that is one fancy airside bottle of whisky.There was none of that when I lived in the "Drum" I lived in Kinfauns drive. @Hampden69 Get the soda bread into the oven,I'm on my way! @pat_pooka I remember it well.I seem to recall some houses joined to the opera house at the back of the theatre. The gig was good,I remember @MoniqueDuBois85 Sometimes,when I get a particularly nasty one ,I take a little time off until I feel there is some point to doing it at all @JaneHughes98 We had a wonderful reception at the Toronto Film Festival,and I've never had a problem with Canadian audiences,have you? @babbaker80 I was supposed to leave tonight to present a BAFTA in London,but all is off because of snowstorm.We'll see tomorrow.

@IanOxfam That was one of the strongest moments emotionally in my life. Sometimes you go to bed feeling like you have done something. @LIGHTNINGFRONT it was either Hill St. In Glasgow,or the Main Street in Coalburn on the A74. @JohnCockburn7 It was in Ken Done's garden in Chinaman's Bay in New South Wales. I'm not so sure he was stranded though. You could be right. @BSunofficial So glad you were moved by somebody's Darling. I carried that idea around after seeing it in a magazine years ago. How nice. @MarkBre1969 Of course it is! My God my age is really beginning to show.

@MarkBre1969 Where exactly in Western Australia is that? @lewisjheaney I remember it well. @CWilebore Don't leave it a second longer. Go now. It's out there waiting for you. @salliwb I must say you surprised me with your attitude to OZ pubs. I always enjoyed them as much as I enjoy Australians. @rongord Yes, I'll be at the game. I can't wait to hear the singing,it has become so impressive and inventive. @rongord I ca N't remember the name of the cafe,but I think it was owned by a relative of Sydney Devine. @that70s_chick Get back to those books immediately. @Tomdickfoolery I always thought that Still Crazy should have done much better than it did. I keep meeting people who love it. @lewisjheaney I love Fife,but it's a long time since I was there.I spent a lot of my time there in my early days with Gerry Rafferty. @davydog22 I'll be there in April at the Riverside. See you there!

@buygiftvouchers 'Twas ever thus! @salliwb where are you. The dark side of the Moon? @RKade8583 What an amazing compliment,thank you. I love George Carlin. His daughter came to see me the last time I played LA.I was pleased. @ArranTrust The Isle of Arran is the true Gem of the Clyde. Loved by the residents,and adored by visitors,it is truly a miniature Scotland. @ripplescrafts I'm so proud to have a following of hens. Did you ever hear a fiddle tune called The Hens March to the Midden? It's lovely. @aussiejo1 Happy Fortieth Birthday t youxxxBC @topsytheterror You won't regret a visit to the underground city. It's a real sensation. I hope you manage to see it. @EyeonyouBee By the way. In no way do you represent Scotland. The good people of Scotland are quite capable of representing themselves . @EyeonyouBee I haven't become any of these awful thins. I merely think that it is dagerous for people I'm my position to try to sway others.

@fonte1969 Actually,I had no interest in his morality.I was merely intrigued to find where the whole thing came to life.It's interesting. @sirRobFlint Robert,I have this idea. Lets go ahead with both of our lives as if tonight didn't happen.We are now back to square one. Agree? @fonte1969 I just read a tweet by the guy who did find them,and congratulated him on his noble project.I gave him a couple of dull ideas.
