Could she be any sweeter?
In 2020 two Irish paddle boarders, cousins, 17-year-old Ellen Glynn and 23-year-old Sara Feeney, came into trouble while out at sea when their boards suddenly drifted off the Irish coast leaving them lost at sea for 15 hours.
While they were out there, in desperation and in need of a distraction the girls sang Taylor Swift songs to pass the time.
Luckily they were rescued by fishermen Patrick and Morgan Oliver and survived the incident.
The pop singer who’s songs kept the girls going while in a scary situation heard their story and wrote them a letter and sent them a painting. The girls explain in RTÉ’s Documentary on One production Miracle in Galway Bay, which airs on RTÉ Radio 1 at 6pm today.
Now 18-year-old Ellen told listeners it was her who started the singing but her cousin soon joined in, “I’d say at first Sara thought I was insane, but then she started singing along and it was a bit of a distraction.”
What an amazing story, and how sweet of Taylor to reach out! Hear the girls tell the full story on the documentary tonight at 6pm on RTÉ Radio 1.
