Ireland’s most watched daytime show  – Today with Maura and Dáithí, which is broadcast live from RTÉ Cork, returns this afternoon for a brand new season.

Presenters Maura Derrane and Dáithí O’ Sé will bring their infectious blend of fun to brighten everyone’s afternoon and …as well as a brand new set this season there will be new roving reporters as part of the team.

Presenter Bláthnaid Treacy will join Pat Fitzpatrick on the couch each Thursday to discuss all the latest entertainment news. Other new reporters include Keith Walsh and Ciara King as well as returning reporters Brenda Donohue, James Patrice and Trishauna Archer…

Today with Maura Derrane and Dáithí airs Monday to Friday at 3.30pm on RTÉ One.

Ah Mr Ó Sé, we’ve been expecting you.

This afternoon.

Malahide Castle, County Dublin.

Sinead Harrington writes:

Dáithí Ó Sé brought a license to thrill to the RTÉ Rose of Tralee launch when he was helicoptered into Malahide Castle to meet all 64 hopeful Roses for the first time ahead of this year’s 2017 Rose of Tralee International Festival.

Dáithí’s dramatic aerial entrance, courtesy of a former Rose of Tralee escort and pilot Ted Robinson, ensured that the Rose of Tralee festival started in style.

This is Dáithí’s eighth year presenting the show, proving that in his eyes Roses are forever; he and the 2017 Roses were in flying form at Malahide Castle before they began their journey to Tralee.

The festival is now in its 58th year and interviews with the final 32 Roses will be broadcast live from the festival dome in Kerry at 8pm on Monday 21 and Tuesday 22 August on RTÉ One with a break for the Nine O’Clock News….

We took to the streets of Dublin on St. Patrick’s Day to ask people did they know who the man (top right) was. Every single person said [native-tongued dreamboat] Dáithí! It is however not Dáithí…it’s ANOTHER man.

Some outtakes from Daithi’s debut last night, recorded on Karl’s old cassette player. Includes stuff we made up.

10. “Lynda’s a Garda. She’s promised to get me off any time I want, right Lynda?”

9. “….Katie, all the way from New York! Hope you weren’t there during the 7/11.”

8. “And I hear you’re training for a triathlon, Aisling? really? With those knockers?”

7. “…and your fiancee Frankie’s in the crowd. His turn to be a high-class escort, hah?”

6. “Not too close to the microphone there, Colleen. It’s been in my pocket.”

5. “Here Lynette. Hold this ‘balloon'”.

4. “And you’re going to do a bit of dancing, Tara. Great, I’ll hold your shoes and pants.”

3. “Wait until you see my dome.”

2. “Your mother’s in the audience – she was a Rose too. Before the Famine, was it?”

1. “And you’ve brought your harp? Mighty. I’ve me flute here.”
