Nominees in 98FM’s Best of Dublin 2019 – unsung heroes who are “the ultimate celebration of the best our city has to offer”.
Johnny Lyons, the sports desk stalwart at Dublin’s 98fm has died.
A statement released by 98fm this evening reads:
The entire station is devastated with the sudden passing of a beloved colleague. Johnny, with his larger than life personality, was loved by all listeners and colleagues alike. He was a huge part of the 98FM family and will be dearly missed, we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his family at this time. May he rest in peace”.
Dublin city could be set for a make over if plans to put up billboards which double as seats, get the go ahead. Cities in Europe already have billboards with curled up bottoms that are used for public seating.
98FM are looking for people to nominate themselves, other people, places and things in what they’re calling the ultimate Best of Dublin list….
Kathryn Ryan of the station writes:
“Categories include ‘Food and Drink’ , ‘Culture’ and ‘Shops’ but we will also celebrate individual Dubliners which will include best bus driver, bartender, best quintessential ‘dub’, morning person, street artist and trade person. We will then select a shortlist and put it to a public vote. Balloting closes on June 27t, with our Awards Ceremony in Smock Alley On July 2…”
