    Rugby Referee Nigel Owens

    John's first guest is probably the best referee in world rugby, but there's more to Nigel Owens than that, as six years ago he became the first openly gay man in rugby's macho world. He’s also the man who broke our hearts last month with two big decisions at the end of THAT match against the All Blacks!. John is joined by Nigel Owens from a studio in Wales.

    Song My Hero

    John joins a choir of 24 young ladies, all transition year students from the Presentation Secondary School in Clonmel. These girls achieved something remarkable last week, reaching No. 7 in the Irish charts and No.1 in the Irish iTunes download chart with a very special song they wrote in honour of one of their teachers, Alice Strain, who tragically died in a car crash earlier this year.


    The song is called ‘My Hero'.
