I can't wait to host the Meteor Choice Awards





I'm so excited that I'm going to be co-presenting this year's Meteor Choice Music Prize awards in March. I can't reveal who'll be presenting it with me just yet but I'm really looking forward to it.

I love music and interviewing bands and it's the route I want to continue on so getting the chance to present the Meteors in so exciting for me.

Last summer I presented the Electric Picnic show and I had such a blast. Summer is my favourite time of year and I'm an avid festival goer so I try to get to as many as I can.

I think the Meteors will be a great night because it's a celebration of Irish music.

The list of nominees is just incredible - you have some of the biggest acts in the world, like U2, up there with new stars like Hozier but also bands who have just released their first single like Little Hours.


It's not confirmed who will be performing just yet but I've had a few hints and it's set to be a great night.

I'm already starting to think about what outfit I'm going to wear and I think I'll head in to Folkster in Temple Bar to pick something out.

They have such an eclectic mix of clothes and dresses and accessories - they dressed me for the EBBAs and I loved that outfit so much so I'm sure they'll sort me out for the Meteors.

Ruth's walking tour of fashion

See Merrion Square through a fashion lens and follow in the footsteps of its most stylish residents from couturiers such as Sybil Connolly to poets, politicians and literary greats.

This Saturday, at 2pm, Ruth Griffin will lead the event.

She will commence with an insightful talk and coffee in the Friends Room of the National Gallery, following which the group will set out on foot to explore the remarkable and almost lost fashion history of Merrion Square.

Forbidden Fruit latest line-up

The latest acts to be added to the bill of the first festival of the summer include electronic superstars Groove Armada, DJs Jamie xx, Richie Hawtin, Damien Lazarus and the Ancient Moons and Mount Kimbie.

Forbidden Fruit will take place at the IMMA over the June bank holiday weekend.

Early bird weekend tickets are on sale now at €99.50.
