Gay Byrne has been knocking it out of the park again this week with his witty one-liners.

Chatting about the result of last weekend's marriage referendum with editor and activist Ross Golden-Bannon, Gaybo quipped: "It's now a case of Come back Paddy Reilly and marry James Duff."


Dermot Bannon, George Hook and Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh are all taking part in tonight's special dancing edition of 'The Late Late Show'.

While Maria and the 'Hookie Monster' have a little bit of formal training under their belts, Bannon - who will perform a Bollywood dance routine to Jai Ho - is a novice to the world of plies and ball changes.

"I have never danced before," he told a group of reporters.

"Now, all of a sudden, I'm wearing a kurta and mascara and jumping all over the place. The only dancing I did when I was younger was the shuffle to get the shift."

Your wife is one lucky lady.


Buskers performing under the famous "dreaming spires" of Oxford have been warned they can face a fine of up to Stg£1,000 if they aren't smiling sweetly while strumming guitars/ break dancing or miming.

Given that some of Dublin's best-known buskers include the acerbic comedian David McSavage, and those brooding musicians, Glen Hansard and Damien Rice - I can't see this law being introduced on our shores.


Social media went mad yesterday when a picture of George Clooney appeared outside a Post Office in Newcastle, Co Down.

He was rumoured to be up North for the Irish Open. Sadly though George wasn't sending post cards. It was all an elaborate hoax.
