Cathy O’Halloran Mid West Correspondent

Daughter of the great Limerick and Ahane hurler and a TD and MEP for Fianna Fail Mick Herbert


#3

Tom McCaughren - former Security Correspondent.

I remember him reporting on stories like The General’s killing when I was a youngster. He has published several novels.


#4

“Such as Run Swift, Run Free” and “Run with the Wind”


#5

Charlie Bird - Chief News Correspondent.

Back in the role after an ill-fated spell as US Correspondent.

Was famously involved in unsavoury incidents during the Love Ulster celebratory riot.

Paschal Sheey - Southern Editor / Correspondent … The fucking wind bag.


#7

Please note the area from which he corresponds or get the fuck out of this thread, comrade.


#8

Will Goodbody - General Correspondent

Pencil necked fucker


#9

Amended


#10

Damien Tiernan - South Eastern Correspondent.

Never involved in anything of note. Usually reports on floods in Clonmel or a big ship entering Waterford harbour.

Married to retired and very ugly athlete, Catherina McKiernan, as far as I know. An unrelated debate but at what stage do you just give up and settle for that?


#11

Ah Bandage, it’s Damien O’Reilly that’s married to McKiernan.

He presents Liveline at the odd time.

Damien Tiernan is a distant relation of mine.


#12

Farmer, I’ll delete my post if you delete your one. Deal or no deal?


#13

#14

Eileen Magnier, North Western Correspondent

Eileen is married to former Mayo footballer TJ Kilgallon.


#15

wasnt he in some left wing militia in his youth- there is a picture of him firing a gun over a grave


#16

On iPhone so not sure if I can


#17

Aoife Kavanagh - former RTE Foreign (war i think) correspondent. From Enniscorthy.

Interesting fact- she used to do a line with Mac’s brother.


#18

RTE? Nah, there’s only one correspondant worth a fuck and that’s this man


#19

Aonghas McNally - Community Games Correspdant

Reared his ugly head on the hurricane tribute the other night. Made a bollix of recreating hurricanes blue to the brown pocket from the match v White in '82.
