Ruby Walsh

Our audience welcomed him with a standing ovation and it's no surprise after his record-breaking success at Cheltenham lifted the mood of the whole country. He's a national hero and Christy Moore has dedicated a song to him, but success hasn't gone to his head - Ruby didn't even take a day off after Cheltenham!

Peter Kelly Aka Franc

Planning a wedding is one of the most stressful events in anyone's life, but Ireland's number one wedding planner explained how to make the most out of your big day on any budget and how to get through it all without panicking! Brides of Franc starts on RTE 1 at 8:30 on Sunday, March 22nd. To launch the new series, Franc, aka Peter Kelly, is inviting all brides and bridesmaids to dig out their dresses at a special event at Cork's Boardwalk on Friday 20th March. There is a chance to meet the presenter, win prizes including diamonds and partake in a special photoshoot! If you would like to get involved in the event or need further information email

David Attenborough

He is the greatest wildlife filmmaker ever to have graced our screens. His career as a naturalist and broadcaster has spanned nearly five decades and made him the most travelled man in the world. David Attenborough had our audience hanging on every word as he described getting up close and personal with all kinds of wildlife, and what you need to do if a gorilla tries to undo your shoelaces!

Sandy Kelly

She's been singing since the age of three and we have the footage to prove it! Since then Sandy Kelly's musical career has spanned everything from Eurovision hits in the 80s to duetting with Johnny Cash on "Woodcarver." Looking as beautiful as ever Sandy talked about turning down Mr. Cash's advances and then performed the classic "Ring of Fire".
