Breakfast with Hector
Good morning! Hector spoke to Andrew McGinley from Sodexo Ireland this morning. Andrew was one of the organisers and participants in setting a new world record of 53 hours of a non-stop five aside football match. A panel of fifteen men and one woman rotated and kept the game going. The final score was an impressive, 695 – 601. Their aim was to raise €20,000 to give to Barnardos, ICS, and St. Vincent de Paul.
On 16th May, Hector spoke with Allan Dixon (Daxon). Daxon was in the running to win the Best Job in the World, working in the Outback in Australia for 6 months along with €80,000. The competition was run by Tourism Australia in order to promote the country. This morning, Daxon was delighted to announce that he won the competition and is off to the outback for his dream job.
Cathal Rochford competed against Celine Madigan from Dublin this morning. Cathal is almost champion for a week now. He defended his title and managed to win himself two tickets to Michael Buble’s concert this July in The 02 Dublin. The Cork man will be looking for another Dublin opponent tomorrow. Text your name and location to 51552 after 7am to be in with a chance to represent Dublin and beat the Rest Of the Country.
All this week Carlton Hotels have given Hector one of their Mini Explorer Packages to give away daily. Lucy Lawlor from Lucan managed to answer two questions correctly and win a 5 night stay in the Carlton Hotel Tralee for two adults and two children, dinner on two nights, spa treatments for the adults while the children enjoy the Mini Explorer adventures as well as a family day out pass to Toby World and Carlton provide your packed lunch. Under 12’s are invited to enter this competition and answer a couple of questions to win their family a fantastic prize worth €1,500.
Hector checked in with Niall and Caoimhe after their BWH date on Friday night. The couple were treated to dinner in Dylan Moran’s Fade Street restaurant, chauffeur driven to the Rhianna concert, and an overnight in the Crowne Plaza hotel. The couple had a wonderful evening and apparently are keen to see one another again. Hector’s match making work is done!
Until tomorrow at 7am, KHL.
