Saoirse Ronan finally speaks out about that shocking sketch on Saturday Night Live. Here's the video just incase you had forgotten it. 

In an interview with the Sunday Independent Soirse had her say about the backlash. 

"One of the brilliant things about the Irish is that we can take the piss out of ourselves. And I love Aer Lingus, I’ve flown with them since I was a child, and one of the most emotional moments for me about going home is when I get on an Aer Lingus flight and I hear the Irish accent and I’m surrounded by people from home." The actress went on to say "it was never done in bad taste or anything like that" and "It was all a bit of craic, like.”

The actress is currently promoting her new film "On Chesil Beach" which were sure will be better than the sketch.
