Love Locks Revisted
If you were listening yesterday you’d have heard us discuss the problem of ‘love locks’ on Dublin’s iconic Ha’penny Bridge over the River Liffey that links Temple Bar with Liffey Street.
Anyone who’s crossed the bridge over the past two years will undoubtedly have spotted these numerous clumps of padlocks securely locked to the rails and overhead arches on the bridge.
These so called “love locks” are being put there by couples as a very public symbol of their love for each other.
Brenda give Derek an update on the locks and they speak to Siobhan Silke from France 24 about the problem in Paris. See her pictures below.
TV Talent Shows Winners and Losers
If you’re a fan of TV talent show’s you’ll know that Tyrone singer, 27 year old partially-sighted Andrea Begley, mentored by The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue, won the BBC's The Voice over the weekend.
Andrea is now putting her master’s degree in law on hold after bagging herself the top prize of a record deal with Universal worth up to £1million.
And did you see how Andrea’s win visibly upset the Black Eyed Peas Will.I.Am who was looking after the beaten hot favourite Leah McFall, also from Northern Ireland? What was THAT all about?
But now certain fame and fortune awaits Andrea. Or does it? Pat O Mahony is in studio to chat about the winners and losers in TVs Talent shows.
