Anna Clifford was the stand out, the dirty Dubliner spoke about being a millennial and how Irish girls are described as the life of the party, but never complemented on their looks: “They’re great craic – but no one ever says they have a great crack”. - Deadline News, Edinburgh 2019 http://www.deadlinenews.co.uk/2019/08/05/comedy-all-together-irish-at-dropkick-murphys/
