‘Black Paddy’ to be well fed at Fermanagh festival

TIKTOK king Fabu-D aka ‘Black Paddy’ will be the main attraction on the opening night of this year’s Lady of the Lake Festival.

He better come with a healthy appetite as he’ll be taking on the monster burger eating challenge along with other well-known faces on the first day of the event.

In an Instagram post, the popular social media celebrity was greeted by festival supremo Joe Mahon who said he was looking forward to him coming to Irvinestown.


“I’m buzzing to be going and see you guys on the 11th of July,” he told Joe.

“It’s going to be great craic and I’m getting ready to eat a massive burger. Let’s see who will finish it first.

“I don’t know who the new Lady of the Lake is, but I’m looking forward to finding out. Irvinestown get ready for some good craic with Black Paddy!”

He did ask for one favour, however.

“Make sure you have some good Guinness up there because I love the black stuff. Let’s get cracking,” he said.

When Joe asked him if he’d sing his infamous song: ‘How much is that Doggy in the Window’? Black Paddy replied: “Aye, I might be able to do that as well.”

Earlier this year, the Dublin-based comedian and entertainer called into Swifts Eurospar in Lisnaskea for a breakfast roll.


“I love the fact that you guys are so happy at this time in the morning – it’s literally 8am. A legend of a place. The best craic. Everyone is unreal,” he gushed in a video he put on his Facebook page.

That was until some staff members admitted they had never heard of ‘Black Paddy’ to the shock of the comedian.

“You’ve never heard of ‘Black Paddy’!? I literary run the country. Just go on TikTok and you can see who I am,” he replied.

After getting his breakfast roll for £4.99, he asked for a discount as he was the famous ‘Black Paddy’ only to be told by one of the counter staff: “No, because I’m ‘White Brenda’ and I don’t get any discount!”

The witty response had him roaring with laughter and he called the staff “really amazing girls”.

“You can never beat a breakfast roll. That was unreal, man. I’m going to rate this breakfast roll a solid 10 out of 10. A shout-out to you Lisnaskea,” he said after devouring the tasty meal in his car.

He later shared a photo of himself and the staff of Swifts Eurospar on his Facebook page, describing himself as “the only black pudding in the pic”.
