My poison of preference…

Wow. Loads to share about the weekend but for the moment I only have time for one. Sunday evening, almost 5 now after being out til 5 this morning (and yes, that is a Herculean effort for someone who gets up at 4am weekdays!) and I have some life experience to share that may prove useful to you. When I was in college pints of Bulmers were my tipple of choice (as any student will know they are great for nursing on a limited budget.) As I got older I went through a Bacardi phase brought to a merciful end […]

End of the second week now and we really seem to be flying… It’s actually quite weird to be part of a large group of people working on a quite content-intensive show.

Weird…. Have been threatening to do this kind of thing for ages and the start of the new breakfast show seemed the ideal time. The hope is that I’ll have a little time each day to ramble my ramblings along with the rest of the blogverse (is that a word..? If not I claim the copyright!) Already we’re a week and a bit into the new show…. Having said that am I presuming too much just in case you stumbled in here accidentally?!?!?! I’m Rick O’Shea the co-presenter, along with Ms Ruth Scott, of the new breakfast show on RTE […]
