I would suggest you check out Podge & Rodge’s Christmas special on RTE 2 on Stephen’s Night but I’m genuinely afraid as to how they’ve edited me and what they’ll call me when I’m not there…

Have a happy, peaceful and work-free Christmas 🙂


PS The Penfolds have just texted me these… The band doing their first ever national radio interview, Bren finally getting to meet Larry Gogan, if only in picture and Jamie gets as close to Marian Finucane as the restraining order will allow…

PPS My final thought before Christmas?

It’s all you need…… 😉
