Breakfast with Hector
On this morning’s show, Hector welcomed the Prince of Cambridge into the world. The son of Kate and William is yet to be named. But in all the melee over in London, Hector wondered if Ireland had a baby born at the same day and time as the Royal baby. And so began the search for Ireland’s Royal Celtic Baby.
Marian from Donegal competed against Patricia from Ennistymon this morning. Marian was defending her title as ‘Don’t Panic’ champion. The prize today was with thanks to the four star McWilliam Park Hotel in Claremorris for a one night stay for a family of 4. Marian was successful again this morning and will be looking for another opponent in the morning.
All this week BWH has teamed up with Londis. Each daily winner will receive €400 worth of Londis vouchers as well as being put into the overall draw which will take place on Friday. The overall winner will receive a family 3 night stay in the 5 star Fota Island resort including accommodation in a luxury lodge, B&B, passes to the wildlife park and €2,500 spending money. This morning, Hector asked his Soldiers of the Dawn to text in with something unique about their local place. Darren from Finglas text into the show telling of the local well that Saint Patrick himself stood in during his time in Ireland.
This morning’s ‘Rewind’ brought us back to a year when the Spice Girls were the most popular band, Verve’s Bittersweet Symphony was released and Dolly the sheep made headlines. The year in question was 1997. Mary Ruddy from Donegal answered correctly and she has won a night at the Ballsbridge Hotel in Dublin for a family get away for 2 adults and 2 children.
And the Royal Celtic Baby was discovered and crowned this morning on BWH. Baby Eoin was born in South Tipperary General Hospital in Clonmel yesterday at exactly 16.24, the exact same time Kate Middleton gave birth to the Prince of Cambridge. Eoin’s mum, Donna, spoke to Hector this morning. Our very own Royal Celtic Baby who will always be associated with the new Prince.
Lots more competitions and chat from 7.00-10.00 tomorrow morning on RTÉ 2fm. KHL.
