A new-born calf named after Ryan Tubridy will be auctioned live on RTÉ 2fm as part of a special charity fundraiser.

Speaking to RTÉ TEN, Tubridy said: "Obviously, I’m thrilled to be a dad again. Looking at him, young Tubridy is the cut of his old man.

"All the family features are there; long face, notable ears and a constant sound coming from his large mouth.

"It’s a shame I have to farm him out but I have no doubt that his next dad will look after him and help raise money for a good cause along the way. It’s a mooooving story…."

Tubridy the Calf already has an eye for style and the camera!

Listen in to The Tubridy Show, weekdays 9 to 11am on 2fm and the auction, in aid of the Youghal Cancer Support Centre, will take place live on air from Dungarvan Mart on February 25.
