Michelle Hough told VIP Magazine at the time that Angus spent his “brilliant” trip to Offaly “retracing his roots”.

“He spent the day with his cousins visiting beautiful heritage sites such as Clonmacnoise, the spectacular monastery on the banks of the river Shannon. He partied the evening away then in JJ Houghs,” she explained, adding that the traditional pub is actually owned by his cousin Gerald Hough.

“Angus loved the live music and was seen dancing away with his family.”

Before Angus was cast in the smash hit drama Euphoria, he told the Wall Street Journal that he had actually planned to relocate here.
