Woke up last Tuesday morning with my heart thumping in my chest…..why? IRISH TV…..that’s why! They were coming to interview me for the programme Roscommon County Matters and I was absolutely planking with fear! “It’s all very well”, I said to the wife who had arranged it with Ger Moran, “but I’m the one who’s going to have to do all the talking – and where will you be? Off drinking coffee somewhere I suppose and well out of the limelight.” “Stop your fussing. You’ll be well able for it” she said as she stalked off leaving me in a total panic! Well, I ask you! I’m the one who’s supposed to be shy and anti-social and here she has me being interviewed and not only that but on the TELLY!
Anyways, they came; I talked; they went! And they were lovely, but ask me what I said and I couldn’t tell you! I haven’t a clue but apparently it went very well – according to the wife – and surprisingly I didn’t get stuck for words!
So, prepare yourselves. It’s going to be aired on 16th November, we think, on Channel 191 and if you want a bit of a laugh as you watch a total amateur making a fool of himself, please watch it. I’ll need all the support I can get and guess what? There’ll be no Christmas present for herself this year if it doesn’t go well!
