Taylor Swift Pens Note To Irish Ph.D Student


A Taylor Swift fan in Ireland has shared a handwritten note he received last month from the pop superstar.

Andrew Mooney, who studies at the School of Natural Sciences at Dublin’s Trinity College, also received one of Swift’s folklore cardigans and an autographed Lover CD.

“Someone told me you’re about to finish your Ph.D! I wanted to congratulate you on this incredible accomplishment and to applaud you for all the hard work you’ve put into your studies,” Swift wrote. “This is EPIC!!”

The singer thanked Mooney, who is gay, for being a fan. “I’m also so proud of you for the bravery you’ve shown in your personal life, choosing to live and love honestly even when it isn’t easy,” wrote Swift, who revealed it was Mooney’s friend Rachel Byrne who tipped her off.

Mooney called the message “beautiful” and added: “I can’t put into words how much this means to me. You have changed my life.”
