All smiles as Tubridy bows out on beach

RYAN Tubridy couldn’t help but break into a great big smile today — and who could blame him.

RTE’s golden boy wrapped up his final Tubridy radio show on RTE Radio One this morning as the ‘bucket and spade tour’ came to an end with a show on Bray seafront.

And with a nice big break stretching out before him, before he fills the late, lamented Gerry Ryan’s shoes on 2fm in September, Ryan had plenty to be pleased about. The Late Late presenter has also just finished his book on JFK’s visit to Ireland, as well as working on a documentary about the same subject.

It’s fair to say, this is one RTE star who’s probably earned that summer break.
