Breakfast with Hector
Monday morning, and the start of a brand new week. On this morning’s ‘How’s The Country’, Hector spoke with Paul Treyvaud of Treyvaud’s Restaurant in Killarney. Paul has been noted for his fascinating videos on youtube cooking in the strangest of places! Paul’s videos have been seen by Jamie Oliver and Simon Cowell and viewed over 5,000,000 times. Jamie Oliver says he’s deadly so we’ve no doubt we’ll be hearing a lot more of Paul and Treyvaud’s Restaurant. In the meantime, check out his videos here.
Hector spoke to David Rossi this morning. David is living in London and placed a bet over 12 years ago on the next Man United manager. David correctly predicted David Moyes as the man who would take up the job of team manager following the successful 27 year career of Alex Ferguson. At the odds of 66/1 David put the bet of £21.95 sterling on in December 2001 and cashed it in last week for a handsome, £1,470.
In Dubs v ROC Damien Flaherty competed against Dublin’s Niall from Lucan to defend his title. Damien was quick off the mark having been up early this morning and managed to once again remain champ and win tickets to The Rory Gallagher International Tribute Festival 2013 in Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal. All this week’s winners will receive tickets and be entered into the overall draw on Friday for 3 nights Bed & Breakfast at the 4 Star Great Northern Hotel Bundoran for ther Rory Gallagher Festival Weekend. Hector will be looking for another Dub tomorrow morning so text you name and location to 51552 to be in with a chance to play.
‘What Class Of A Bark Is It?’ is back by popular demand! This morning’s bark was brought to us by a beautiful border collie and correctly identified by Wexford man, Paul O’Toole in Gorey. Paul had the choice of tickets to 4 different gigs taking place Live at the Marquee in Cork City. Olly Murs on June 12th, Sting on July 1st, Jussie J on July 7th or Christy Moore on July 6th. Paul will be heading off to Olly Murs next month for winning this morning.
The Irish Holy Communion sees children receiving cards with cash presents of anywhere from €10-€50 per card. With such large sums of money being handed over every year, Hector was interested to know what effect this had on the local economy. David McWilliams calculated that there are 60,000 First Holy Communions taking place this year in Ireland. The average family spends €744 (Ulster Bank Report) and that generates a massive €44.6m. David’s new book ‘The Good Room’ is out now in paperback and available from all good book shops nationwide.
Hector had a very Cranky Car call this morning in Fethard-on-Sea, Co. Wexford. Mum Carol had been up early to try and get Lily Anna out of bed. Lily Anna gets her dressing gown warmed and a chocolate breakfast as a treat to get her up in the mornings but still managed to be in Cranky form this morning. She and her mum sang the Cranky Car song at the top of their voices in order to cheer everyone up this morning!
We’ll be back tomorrow with more from 7.00 – 9.00am. KHL
