Tributes are pouring in for author and actress Biddy White Lennon who has passed away.
She became a household name in the 60s and 70s when she played Maggie in Irish soap The Riordans.
More recently, she was a judge on TV3’s Bake Off.
Farewell Biddy White Lennon. I will miss your great wit & wisdom and your many thoughtful kindnesses to me. Ireland has lost a fearless advocate of real food. She spoke truth to power wherever she went with disarming charm. It’s so hard to say goodbye. https://t.co/GF9DG7wUEe— Ross Golden Bannon (@goldenshots) November 25, 2017

RIP Biddy White Lennon AKA Maggie Riordan. Remembering her enforced phantom pregnancy. From my well-selling book From Clery's Clock To Wanderly Wagon. (Title enforced on author by publisher.) pic.twitter.com/KAwiCAHMHk— Damian Corless (@DamianCorless) November 25, 2017
