Staying In Tomorrow?


Podge & Rodge and Doireann Garrihy

On The Ray D’Arcy Show

Fergus McCormack writes:

The return of the mischievous Podge & Rodge to Irish TV after an eight year hiatus is highly anticipated and the irreverent duo join Ray to introduce their new co-host, Doireann Garrihy.

World solo sailor Gregor McGuckin arrived home to a hero’s welcome this week, joins us to tell us about his journey, which ended when he lost both of his masts during a violent southern ocean storm.

Nine-year-old Lucy Harrington is one of Ireland’s youngest award-winning sheep farmers and she joins Ray with her All-Ireland champion lambs and prize-winning hoggets.

Political stalwarts and former ministers Mary O’Rourke, Gemma Hussey and Niamh Bhreathnach join Ray to talk about claims of sexism in the Dáil

And 91-year-old Holocaust survivor Dr. Edith Eger joins Ray to talk about how she learnt how to ‘find joy within’ after the horror of Auschwit

There’ll be music from Maria Byrne, with her stirring take of the Genesis classic, Follow You, Follow Me…

The Ray D’Arcy Show at 9.55pm on RTÉ One.

    Wasn’t The Podge and Rodge Show one of those cautionary tales about what happens when an onanistic RTÉ executive gets his hands on a successful programme? Somehow, RTÉ ended up with a rare gem of comedy in the form of A Scare at Bedtime and before long, an interfering exec decides of his own motion that he wanted it re-jigged as a talk show, of all things. Naturally, the result is calamitous and the creators depart on acrimonious terms.

    Looks like the tool Darcy is going to test the wisdom of WC Fields’ advice about never working with Children or animals.

    This could be epic.

    Let me guess: Doireann Garrihy happens to be related to someone already working in/for RTE? Like a sister perchance?
