The weekend, Subo, who has been keeping a low profile of late, was spotted at the bar of the Halfway House in the tiny village of Burnfoot, County Donegal – where she ordered Guinness and a hearty sandwich.
Local customers were agog when the international singing sensation stepped into the pub on a cold Sunday afternoon.
True to form though, the singer made friends by posing for pictures and signing autographs before finally settling down to her lunch.

In a report on Deadline News, Martina Long, sister of the pub’s owner, said: 'We went straight down to the bar when we got a call to say Susan Boyle had come in. She was lovely. She had a sandwich and a half pint of Guinness and chatted away to everyone. She signed autographs and stood for photos. She was very nice. Word got about pretty quickly and within minutes the crowd in the bar had doubled.'
Boyle reportedly wore a white cable-knit jumper and a green scarf as she toured the scenic Inishowen peninsula with two other unidentified women and a man.
Later, the visitors stopped into the Lake of Shadows Hotel in the town of Buncrana for dinner.
Breedge Doherty, the hotel manager, told the press: 'She was chatting away to people in the bar and was very nice to everyone.'
It's not her first time in the county or in Ireland. Previously, Boyle has participated in pilgrimages to Knock shrine in County Mayo and to her parents original homesteads in County Donegal.
