'A long standing and much loved customer' - SuperValu apologise to Twink after banning her pet parrot from store

SuperValu Knocklyon has apologised for 'any embarrassment' they may have caused to Panto legend Twink after banning her pet parrot from their store.

"There are no animals of any descriptions allowed in aside from guide dogs."The Supervalu manager said that when restrictions ease that hopefully himself, Twink and the parrot will “go for a drink together and have a laugh about this”.Earlier this month the panto star shocked fellow SuperValu shoppers as she strutted around the store wearing a ‘high-end visor’ with Timby perched on her shoulder.

Twink’s good friend and former co-star Joe Rooney condemned the move to ban Twink’s parrot from supermarkets, saying: "Twink is a ­national treasure in Ireland, and if she wants to bring her parrot into a shop, she should be allowed."I can’t think of any woman who has done more for this country than Twink. She’s the Queen of Ireland and should be treated like royalty," he told the Irish Sun.

Schools will not shut for longer at mid-term - Donnelly

Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly has said there is not going to be a longer mid-term break for schools.

She should NOT be allowed in to any premises with that bird.... and she should be old enough and wise enough to realize this! National treasures do not act like this..... Its against food hygiene regulations to let filthy old birds into a shop! Think a ‘national treasure’, what a ludicrous description of her.

Twink’s well known for taking a cockatooo Into supermarkets Seriously Twink. It is not acceptable to bring animals into purveyors of fresh food and I don't think that any shop manager should have to apologise for stopping you. I am delighted that you love your animals but please rethink where you take the cockatiel to. Maybe the zoo today

What a joke Parrot indeed. She's a complete horror show according to someone I know extremely well who had the misfortune to have to work with her. 🙄🙄🙄 And of course the dope is wearing a visor and not a mask. Maybe bring Twink and the bird to the vet and get a 2 for 1 on putting them both to sleep This is ridiculous, what are they apologising for.. the auld bat shouldn’t be bringing a cockatoo into a food store, does she think she’s jack sparrow What a waste of paper , reporting on this as a story..

Another cracker lads. You will ruffle some feathers with this one.!!!!! Keep them coming for all your lucky subscribers!!!!!!! Had to check the date . It isn't 1/4/20.. They banned the wrong parrot Maybe that euthanasia bill has its merits A tough old bird ......the parrot is pretty tough as well 🤣 I'd let the parrot in and bar her.

I use the same Supervalu as her, and she is a complete melt. Always talking really loud in a desperate effort to be noticed and get attention. Same when she walks her dogs. Lax about poo collection too, BTW. Let the parrot in, ban that auld bag instead. Guide Dogs should be the only Animal allowed into a Supermarket. Supavalue have opened a can of worms for themselves How many birds will be brought to there stores this week

Two old birds. Bet the parrot can sing better then her She has always been an attention seeker and will do anything for publicity she is a pure clown Pirate Long John Twinkie Ehh zoonoses, why would you allow people bring birds into food stores? Is it discrimination if I bring a pet rat and I'm refused. Wont be shopping in Knocklyon again thanks for the heads up. Supervalu

I'll be perfectly honest, if and when Twink dies, I'll be happy. I wonder if it was an person not famous would they issue a fawning lickarse statement, shes a loon,what normal person brings a cockatoo to the shop,though twink on the other hand craves publicity, so maybe she's not a loon. What kind of fool would do this in the first place.

Oh please 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 Birds spread disese like rats, I'd say twinks gaff is minging🤮🤮 Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Who the F takes a cockatoo into a grocery store? You would have to be well beyond privileged to believe it was okay, no matter how 'much beloved' you were. I'm with the store manager on this. It’s a cheap €25 Cockateil cheap like herself Parrot cop on Indo

phlaimeaux David, did you ever see the likes of it in your many fabled trips to SuperValu What’s next,giraffes roaming the biscuit aisle in Tesco? Warthogs charging around Londis? Monkey eating bananas with reckless abandonment in Lidl (don cheedle) Thankfully no...no thanks! What nonsense? ....get real in these difficult times.

A Parrot repeating everything Twink says...... twice as bad...... poor Knocklyon I don’t know who is worse . Twink for bringing a bird on her shoulder around a food shop or Supervalu for apologising after banning the said bird. SuperValuIRL kinda of leaning towards SuperValu. Think of your other customers

Leave the bird in ban the old bird 🦅 I wouldn't like the idea of a bird in a good store. It’s not a cockatoo!!! It’s a cockatiel. Very different birds. The zoologist in me cringed reading this article. It’s like saying her chihuahua when it was a Great Dane. C’mon do your research! zoologynerdforlife

Farce, animals are not allowed in shops unless they are guide dogs. Why exactly are SuperValu apologising for not letter her bring her flying bag of shit into the shop? I wouldn't want to shop in a foodstore where a bird was allowed- and if one shopper (however famous) is allowed to bring a bird, why not all shoppers?

Attention seeker. You’d think she’d have more cop on at her age. You just can’t be bringing birds and animals in among fresh food items. Guide dogs excepted of course. Brenda Fricker is in Town It's a tough old bird, the parrot is pretty tough too !!!! Another one looking for notice Is this actually newsworthy? No wonder I have stopped subscribing to your newspapers and online feed.

Is it a seeing eye parrot 🦜 ? FFS. and those visors are about as useful as a condom machine in a convent..... If this is true as a long standing SuperValuIRL shopper ...I’ll never shop in SuperValuIRL Knocklyon again. This is ridiculous. No animals except support dogs should be allowed. Let the parrot in and keep her out

The parrot was heard saying Zip up your Mickey 😂 Cuckoo is more like it Zip your parrot back in your pants ...,, There’s guano on the jacket 🤢 Queen of Ireland 🙄 Waiting for the Barry Egan weeknd interview with the parrot Twink is a selfish moron! 🤦🏻‍♀️ Give her a sword and eye patch harr She only done it to get back into the spotlight

Jesus that woman just can't fade out of limelight gracefully. Let it go woman. It contravenes food hygiene regulations & the HSE Environmental Officers could bring the shutters down on their food sales. I'm sure the parrot is very intrigued by the visits & very stimulated by it, but it really needs a new stimulus

Two old birds looking for attention. She’s some langer who does she think she is going around Knocklyon pretending she’s a pirate 🤬 rtenews Great I'll be bringing my emotional support peacock on my next visit!😆 The parrot is now seeking advice from a legal eagle..... Why would they apologise to her Aaaaar...I suppose its the only attention the old bird gets these days...and as for Twink...

Mad as a bag of spanner’s but a very attractive lady Can I bring my heffer into supervalu too?
