Breakfast with Hector
Friday morning and Hector spoke to RTÉ’s sports rugby commentator, Michael Corcoran, about this Lions weekend. Michael was over in Australia and has been reporting on the lead up all this week. The team have played local teams all week and are now set for their big test against Australia.
Cathal Rochford from Co. Cork has been Dubs v ROC for 4 days this week. Cathal was challenged by Dub, Denis Hughes, this morning who put up a strong fight for the title this morning. Denis was unlucky this morning though as the Cork man walked away with the title and Justin Timberlake tickets in the Phoenix Park on July 10th with special guests Jessie J and James Arthur. Cathal will be competing again on Monday so another Dublin challenger will be called upon. Text 51552 from 7am on Monday with your name and location to be in with a chance to defeat the Cork man.
Gone To The Dogs in association with IGB.ie is where Hector gives you the microphone to get it off your chest. This morning Hector was none too impressed with soap dispensers, particularly the one’s you buy for home use and can’t open once you try to use them. Doireann figured moped drivers were gone to the dogs with their dangerous driving. And bus driver, David Hannon, won the BWH mug for his complaint of bus passengers not having their passes ready on time and delaying service with questions as they exit the bus.
‘Neigh the Lyrics’ is this weeks competition with thanks to Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby. The daily prize is admission for two to the Derby on Saturday 29th June at The Curragh Racecourse, lunch, a bottle of champagne and a Curragh membership for 2013. Today’s daily prize winner was Aoife McAuliffe from Cork. Each of the daily qualifiers went into a draw and Wednesday’s winner, Brenda Ray from Dublin, won herself the VIP Irish Derby Experience including premier admission tickets for 2, champagne lunch, chauffeur driven car to and from the races, two nights accommodation in Barberstown Castle with dinner one evening and breakfast each morning, champagne and chocolates on arrival, and two tickets to the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby Ball in the K Club on 28th June.
Electric Ireland’s ‘Battle of The Minors’ featured Roscommon and Sligo this morning. They are meeting in the Connaught Football Semi-Final this weekend. Ciara from Roscommon predicts a tight enough game with Roscommon winning by 3 points. Mike is from Sligo but currently living in Dubai. He’s keeping up to date with the sporting activities at home and predicts Sligo will win the game by 7 points. Ciara and Mike received their respective county jersey’s for their predictions this morning.
Cranky Car checked in on Caoimhe and Niall this morning as they are going on their first date tonight. The couple met when Caoimhe’s car broke down and army man, Niall, came to her aid. Hector has arranged for Niall and Caoimhe to attend the Rhianna concert as well as dinner and a hotel over night in Dublin. We’ll be checking in with the two love birds to see how they got on on Monday morning.
Have a great weekend. KHL.
