Did you stay up?

A warm thank you to, clockwise from top left ‘Preposterous‘, Olga Cronin, Vanessa Foran, Johnny Keenan and new dad Neil Curran, our panel on last night’s Broadsheet on the Telly.

After last week’s no-show, producer ‘Preposterous’ managed to bring proceedings on air only 30 minutes late. Hmm.

The show can be viewed in its entirety above.

Neil discussed his brand new baby daughter Sadie, Olga broke the news of Ibrahim Halawa’s release and Vanessa (in front of a snazzy backdrop) predicted further trackergeddon to the bristling fury of Johnny.

A rash of rude words ensued.

Shay Given

On The Ray D’Arcy Show

On the release of his autobiography “Any Given Saturday” Irish soccer legend Shay Given will join Ray on the show to take us behind the scenes of his goalkeeping career which has spanned three decades.

For the first time in nearly 20 years, Ray will share a TV screen with his old pal Dustin The Turkey on this Saturday’s show to take a trip down memory lane. And to celebrate we will be recreating the Den and are looking for Dustin fans or people who appeared on the Den get involved this Saturday night. Message from Dustin here.

Ireland’s Fittest Family coaches – camogie champion Anna Geary, Olympic athlete Derval O’Rourke and GAA legend Davy Fitzgerald – will discuss the fierce competition on the show and Ray will give them a taste of their own medicine by setting them a gruelling challenge of in studio.

Also appearing on the show will be seventeen year old Eimear O Tuathail. The talented songwriter’s dream came true when she was flown to Los Angeles to meet her idol, Ellen de Generes, last week.

*weeps softly*

The Ray D’Arcy Show tomorrow at 10pm on RTÉ One.

The Irish-made alphabet of wrestling.

Alan Ruane writes:

I am a graphic designer, illustrator and wrestler living in Dublin. I have recently finished  “The Alphabet of Wrestling” that may be of interest to Broadsheet

The Alphabet of Wrestling was a project I released weekly on social media, primarily Instagram, and features 26 illustrations of performers currently active in wrestling, it features wrestlers from all over the world and from all levels of fame in the wrestling business.

This project combines two of my passions, illustration and wrestling. Wrestling is a visual industry and I feel the larger than life characters really lend themselves to big, bright and vibrant caricatures….

Real sporting giants.
