Breakfast with Hector
On this morning’s show, Hector spoke to David O’Connor who is embarking on a journey of almost 30,000kms to raise money for Cancer and Suicide prevention. David is leaving Ireland on 1st August and driving across continents to reach his destination of Australia. The trip is expected to take the best part of 5 months and will be undertaken in a custom kitted out jeep. Armed escorts have been organised for crossing borders of Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. David is funding the trip himself with some help from sponsors with all funds raised going to the nominated charities. Find out more about David’s charity drive on www.overlandtooz.ie.

An Austrian hotel is looking to employ a jester, a foolish type with lots of creativity, joy, fun and full of entertainment. Alan thought the job might be perfect for Hector! The job description highlights that applicants should bring and play their musical instrument of choice for the interview and that creative costumes are also welcome. With a wage salary of €1,400 a month, this could be the perfect job for an Irish messer!
Joanne in Meath was alone but full of Crankiness in Cranky Car this morning. She, along with our own Louise Heraghty, and hundreds of others took part in the Hell & Back challenge at the weekend.
