    Pat O'Connell & visit to Buckingham Palace

    On yesterday's show I spoke with Pat O'Connell, the fishmonger from the English Market in Cork, who recently received a very special invitation from none other than Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II.  Pat is invited to Buckinham Palace in two weeks time & he will need a new suit for the occasion. 

    We asked if there were any suit makers out there who would be happy to oblige & the man who’ll be giving Pat ‘the ultimate Buckingham Palace makeover’ is on the line now, Eddie Mullins, owner of ‘Fitzgerald’s’ in Patrick Street in Cork.

    Also on the line is Emma Verling originally from Waterford, now living in the UK, who also will be goint to the Palace. Emma joins us on the line to to tell us about her invitation to Buckingham Palace.
