Staff at a Co Down cafe were "starstruck" when Sinead O'Connor stopped by for breakfast on Wednesday.

The Irish singer-songwriter visited Cafe 31 in Downpatrick on Wednesday morning with her daughter when she ordered a couple of coffees and a vegan breakfast.

The owners of the Downpatrick cafe, Sean and Natasha Roberts, shared a picture with their "very special visitor" on Facebook and revealed that the Nothing Compares 2 U singer is "such a lovely woman".

We just had a very special visitor for breakfast this morning . Such a lovely woman and even wanted a photo with us 🤷‍♂️. We were slightly starstruck 🤩🤩🤩 #sineadoconnor

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, cafe owner Sean Roberts said: "She was lovely... she ordered a latte and her daughter ordered an Americano and asked if we could make a vegan breakfast.

"We didn't even recognise her until a customer said who she was. So when I was down at the table I asked was it her and then could I have a picture.

"She said she loves the coffee and ordered one to takeaway and what brand it was. We use Greenbean coffee Roasters."
