The Dredge: Beyoncé leads Dublin crowd in a round of "olé, olé"

It was like Italia 90 all over again. Plus, all the rest of the day’s celeb dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.

#ITALIA ’13 Beyoncé completed her run of two shows at Dublin’s O2 last night with an Irish flag in her hand and with a chorus of “olé, olé, olé, olé”.

She repeatedly wished the sold-out crowd Happy Mother’s Day (nobody wanted to mortify her by telling her it wasn’t Mother’s Day in Ireland) and finished her set with a rendition of halo, with a bit of Italia 90 nostalgia thrown in for good measure.

Beyoncé’s ‘Beyhive’ fans were front and centre for the gig, giving them the chance to paw at her as she frequently moved down to the front of the crowd, and allowed a few people to squawk onto the microphone, aka living the dream.

She changed her clothes approximately 174 times over two hours and was joined by a jaw-dropping array of female dancers and singers.

Top overheard quotes from the night included “she’s such a ride”, “I get tired walking up the stairs” and “I wonder is she going to Coppers”.

DailyEdge.ie spotted at least 5 people crying and was almost swayed by the many ads shown before the gig to buy Beyoncé’s perfume, Pepsi and H&M gear. Shameless.

#NICE TO SEE YOU… The TV Baftas were on in London last night, and the wind played havoc with some of the ladies’ gúnas, including Bruce Forsyth‘s missus Winnie:

#ALL YOU NEED IS BALLS Fans of Everton FC are begging Paul McCartney to help save the club.

An online petition is calling for the former Beatle and Liverpudlian to buy the “illustrious football club” because the “team could face serious financial disaster” in the hands of an investment consortium led by Ukranian billionaire Oleg Bakhmatyuk.

According to TMZ Macca has the dosh handy – Everton’s going for $200, and he’s worth around $800.

Yeah but just because you can afford sparkly Ugg boots, doesn’t mean you should buy them. Right?
