The godfather of drag has put the reality show Ireland's Got Talent on a global platform for appreciation.
RU PAUL CHARLES and Michelle Visage have been friends for decades, and with Visage's new position as a judge on Ireland's Got Talent panel, it's no wonder that the show has Ru's support.
Visage was announced as one of the #GOTTalentIRL judges in 2017 and has been delighting Irish audiences and viewers everywhere with her quick wit and flawless appearances.
While many were left wondering if her best friend Ru Paul tunes into the show, all doubt has been dissipated as the drag queen has sent his support overseas using the Gaelic language.
Charles took the time out of his busy schedule to write a special message to the people of Ireland which read: "A mhuintir na hÉireann! J an chraic? Cloisim go bhfuil mo chailín @michellevisage ag déanamh thar cinn ar @GotTalentIRL Is léir go bhfuil sibhse, na banríonacha, deadlaí agus maightí freisin, ach b’fhearr daoibh an obair a chur isteach nó is ag sashayáil away a bheidh sibh!"
The message translates to 'People of Ireland! What's the craic? I hear that my girl Michelle Visage is doing great on Irelan'ds Got Talent. It's clear that you queens are as mighty and deadly aswell, but you better work or you'll be sashaying away'.

The tweet attracted plenty of Irish people to the message, with even Dara O'Briain and Glenda Gilson welcoming Charles' cúpla focail.

The fact that @RuPaul tweeted in Irish is news in itself, but the care taken in the phrasing (it's absolutely not a Google Translate job) is remarkable.
