Extreme adventurer Bear Grylls will chat about his wild life and putting Barack Obama through his paces… Waterford TD John Halligan will tell us how far he’s willing to go as the stand-off between him and his partners in Government continues… Dr Quinn Medicine Woman and Wedding Crashers star Jane Seymour drops by for a chat about life on- and off-screen…

…We’ll hear from Anna May McHugh about what’s in store for punters [at the Ploughing Championships] this year and Ivan Scott, world record sheep shearer, will demonstrate his skills live in studio.

…Entrepreneur Enda O’Coineen will talk about his passion for life on the waves as he prepares to take part in the Vendée Globe, a single-handed non-stop race around the world… BP Fallon talks about his rock ‘n’ roll life with the great and good of the music business including David Bowie and… he performs alongside Emmy Lou and the Agenda.

    I’ll tell you what’s in store at the Ploughing. The exact same thing as the last 10 years because they have the organising of it down to a fine art. The only difference is the travelling. It’s the same set up, with a giant makeshift town in a field RTE, Dept of Ag and IFA tents in the centre, free pens, bags, papers and luminous waistcoats… and probably Nathan Carter doing a set after the fashion show and the range rover driving up a 75 degree incline and not falling off.

      Im not sure if your praising or slagging them. But iv bedn told the ploughing championship is great laugh.

        It’s magnificently organised and run, but when you’ve to go every year because of work, it’s very repetitive. They have a model that works for them, so if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

    Nothing like a rock star death to get a few entirely plausible stories out of BP Fallon.

    “So there I was with Marc Bolan and Mama Cass, driving this Soyuz Space Capsule around the grounds of Hogwarts…”

      He’s definitely in the Irish category of “living off 5 minutes of fame in the 60s/70s/80s” brigade. Like Brush Shields, Twink, etc.

    Why does Halligan always looks like he is “just out of bed/under the weather” in the Brian Cowen sense?

    He makes James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem look groomed. Actually he makes former Minister, now Senator James “Clapped Out Pajero” Reilly looked groomed and you wouldn’t buy a used car from him either……

    “James Reilly is selling his cars – 10 Jags, three Daimlers and a clapped out Pajero”

    I went to the ploughing championships 3 years ago assuming it would be awful and left raving about it. Really well run, lots to see and do and it’s MASSIVE. I couldn’t believe how big it is. Good food and drink too.

    Why do broadsheet have the late late guest list every week? How many broadsheet readers stay in on Friday night – not only that but watch Tubs?

      Suppose it might be something to do with the gap between what the trendy posters here say they do, and reality.
