Chris de Burgh's daughter Rosanna Davison has beaten off stiff competition from Irish writers, pundits and arts journalists to make the hallowed columns of Pseuds Corner in Private Eye magazine.

The item runs in the UK's premiere satirical periodical in recognition of hyperbole and pretention wherever and whenever they rear their lovely heads.

In the current issue, the former Miss Ireland made the list for these deathless words from an interview she gave to The Irish Times which touched on her decision to strip for Playboy magazine:

"One of my big worries doing Playboy was my responsibility towards women and towards feminism . . . I decided to do it based on my academic understanding of women's writing and literature."

Fine words indeed, fine words.
