Brendan takes break in Spain

RTE presenter Brendan Courtney has flown off to Spain for a well-deserved break in between projects.

The style guru revealed to the Diary how he's going to Barcelona for a few days before going to Madrid. "I can't wait, I'm really looking forward to heading off and just relaxing," he said.

He'll certainly be a busy chap when he gets back. He'll resume filming on a new series of Off The Rails with TV pal Sonya Lennon.

He's also making a one-off documentary about the fabulous fashion at Ladies Day events at Irish racecourses. But he was enjoying some time off recently to attend the launch of Clodagh McKenna's new restaurant in Arnotts.

Looking his usual dapper self, he described the food as "amazing" after sitting down to a five-course menu. TV chef Clodagh said: "My biggest dream has always been to open a small restaurant with a small kitchen and now I've achieved that."
