BIRTHDAYS don’t come around every day, and that is especially true for Jack Drumm, who despite turning 12-years-old yesterday, February 29th, only celebrated his third birthday, as he was born on leap day in the millennium year!
By happy coincidence, Ryan Tubridy visited Monaghan yesterday and broadcast his popular 2FM morning radio show from the Westenra Arms Hotel.
Monaghan was the second stop on Tubridy’s Greet on the Street national tour. The popular broadcaster was very approachable and every bit as warm as his public persona portrays.
His down to earth demeanour put the people whom he met and interviewed immediately at their ease.
The Town Hall part of the Westenra was packed with spectators and contributors to the programme, all eager to observe the excitement of a live radio show.
The talented Mr. Tubridy couldn’t believe that the people of the county had turned out in such numbers to welcome him to the Monaghan’s capital town.
Despite the fact that there was a legion of fans waiting to meet the radio and television personality, he took time out to do a quick interview with our reporter Veronica Corr, who was particularly amused by his recent appearance on the Republic of Telly!
The full interview accompanied by photographs from Northern Standard photographer Rory Geary will be published in next week’s edition. In the meantime, pictures of Tubridy’s Greet on the Street are available on northernstandard.ie
