Who: fairly hefty broadcaster and COTY nominee John Creedon.
When: 10am this morning.
Where: outside lakeside hotel, Ballina/Killaloe (depending on who you talk to).
A safety officer was giving the briefing to a group about to start a cycling sportif (I was one of the Lycra-clad brigade but not one of the tubby ones). A car (151-C Toyota Avensis in case anybody is wondering) approaches from behind us on a narrow road with the cyclists about to start. Car honks with driver saying "I'm in a hurry". I presumed it was either a doctor or someone rushing for 10am mass. Driver then inquires as to where the route is going, reasonably suggesting that if the 40-50 assembled cyclists parted, he wouldn't have to drive behind them at any stage. I think he tried to make a joke and give a cheery wave as soon as the cyclists obliged him, probably twigging that he'd been recognised and that it may be discussed on TFK. His demeanour went from gruff to jolly fat man. He was wearing a grey polo shirt and sunglasses and was fairly wedged into the car. He's a fat man.
There's the details. I'm not sure myself
If he qualifies as a celeb TBH. Over to you @Mullach_Ide.
I'm happy with whatever call you make
