Catch him if you can, his name is Dan

Fans, all either girls or young women, queued for hours to get a glimpse of and meet Australian actor Dan Ewing when he visited The Showgrounds Shopping Centre in Clonmel last week (see photos on this page).

Ewing, best known for his role as River Boy Heath Braxton in the hit TV series Home and Away, stopped off in Clonmel on what was his first Irish tour.

The first arrivals queued from 8.30 on Thursday morning, even though he wasn’t due to arrive until 6 hours later.

Hundreds of people were present when the actor made his entrance, and not a minute late.

He came with his wife, Marni Ewing and they were both greeted by screaming fans.

He met everyone who had come to see him, and even accepted a few presents from adoring fans.

Sam McCauley’s chemist also made up two hampers, one each for Dan and Marni, as gifts from the shopping centre.
