Dublin retirees and Cavan twins set for TV fame on Gogglebox as latest identities are revealed
Fans eagerly awaiting the premiere of the Irish version of Gogglebox will get a first look at the highly anticipated show tonight - and two women look set to be stars.
Castleknock women Angela De La Mere and Eileen Bolger met at their local retirement club. Veteran Eileen spotted newcomer Angela and offered her a seat next to her and they have been close pals ever since.
Dubliner Angela moved back from Wexford a few years ago and enrolled as a mature student, studying Retail in Pearse College. Eileen is originally from Kilkenny and spent most of her life as a Children's and Psychiatric nurse.
Since retiring, Eileen has been very active and takes advantage of her free travel pass, nipping into town for a coffee or on a mission to buy wool for her next knitting project.
Angela’s favourite TV programmes are Midsomer Murders, Come Dine With Me and Miss Marple but she hates Big Brother’and The X Factor. Eileen loves to watch Ear to the Ground and The Chase.
And in Cavan identical twins Fergal and Neal Tully will be providing their TV analysis for the show. Neal has been married or 15 years and has three daughters and lives his life through the four ‘F’s - Football, Family, Friends and Fianna Fáil.
Fergal manages local football teams and works on the family pig and dairy farm. He’s also a family man with two girls and two boys, his youngest only a few weeks old. He's passionate about sport and is said to be jealous of his brother's Sky Sports package, as a lot of viewing in his house revolves around Dance Moms and Don’t Tell The Bride.
Gogglebox Ireland airs tonight on TV3 at 9:30pm
