Mooney/ Mooney Goes Wild

    Monday-Friday, 3 - 4.30pm

    Mooney, Tuesday April 8th 2014

    Listen

    On Mooney today, with Marty Morrissey...

    Male model Gary Talbot tells us about the pressures of the professional modelling business for men. And fresh from her Lifetime Achievement Award at the Limerick Person of the Year Awards, Celia Holman Lee tells us why Limerick women are the most beautiful, stylish and desirable in all of Ireland.

    Listen

    Celia Holman-Lee

    During his visit to Ireland in 1963, JFK made reference to the beautiful women and fast horses of Limerick. That speech came to mind when we saw a newspaper article about Limerick model boss Celia Holman-Lee winning a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Limerick Person of the Year.

    She referenced JFK’s quote – well, the bit about the beautiful women, not the bit about the fast horses! And we're delighted that the fair Celia joins us from the RTÉ Limerick studios today to chat about style and Limerick!

    And if you have any style questions for Celia, you can text them to 51551 or e-mail mooney@rte.ie.

    Gary Talbot

    Every day, we get lots of e-mails, letters, tweets etc to the show about all kinds of things but this item we thought was very interesting.

    Gary Talbot

    Gary Talbot from Ballyfermot in Dublin contacted us to about his career as a successful male model. He is the only Irish male model to strut his stuff on the catwalk during London Fashion Week and has been scouted by some of the biggest fashion houses on the planet, Tom Ford and Versace to name but a couple.

    Well we didn't know much more than that about Gary, so Brenda very very reluctantly volunteered to find out more!
