Irish rugby star Tommy Bowe lining out for RTE travel series Getaways
Irish rugby star Tommy Bowe will be stocking up on suncream now he has joined the presenting team of RTE One's travel show Getaways.
The news comes in the wake of his disappointing exit from the Six Nations but he's not hanging about as he heads to Ibiza to film for the show this week.
"I’m very excited to be part of the Getaways team this year," he said.
"I was disappointed after my injury in the Six Nations but this gives me an opportunity to explore another avenue while preparing myself for next season. Being a part of a great series like Getaways is a dream come true for me and I’m looking forward to the new challenge."
He'll be joining Joe Lindsay, Mairead Ronan and Vogue Williams in the presenting line-up for the series which features holiday destinations that can be reached directly from Ireland.
The series will run over six weeks and all four will check out activities and attractions that viewers have recommended.
However, new dad Tommy won't be partying it up in Ibiza - he'll be looking at a different side to the island.
Other destinations explored this series, which will air in early 2018, will include a visit to the French Riviera and city breaks in New York and Porto and destinations a little closer to home.
