Just seen a preview of the "new" Consumer Show for RTE starting next Tuesday.

Kealan Shanley still there with 3 others I've never seen before.Bill Tyson (award winning journalist!!)....Caitriona (??)and Tadgh(??)


It would seem that Eddie has either gone on to pastures new...or has been dumped!!

Don't particularly rate Eddie myself...but that may be just me!!

Any comments....or gossip on what happened??

Apparently hes signed up for the next series of love/hate.
He plays a shoemaking elf with links to Turkish organized crime via some crazy guys from Ghent.

Dumped perhaps for being too vocal

RTE is state funded and doesnt bite the hand that feeds

I like Keelin Shanley though

More of her please...

He resigned from RTE. Inability to understand objectivity.

Wrong. He resigned because they would not afford him his wish to use RTE for his personal wishes. He was not dumped.

Thin Bill Tyson is OK:

Probably RTE don't want outsiders involved so much. After all their first consumer programme was presented by Brian Dobson and I think was called See Here. Eddie was nowhere to be seen at that time, he was busy with Tony Taylor investments.

No, it's not just you, Spidey.....

The Hobbit always gets found out eventually, but by then he's moved on to the next gig

To his credit, he resigned. He could have stayed on the nice earner and kept his opinions to himself. I'm wondering why the same has not been applied to others in RTE?

If only Ryanair had a direct flight :evil: ... who wants to make 3 or 4 flights just to get there at a price of, say, 2k each way. :shock:

Ah sure, we're all allowed to slip up. Sure didn't you tell us on another thread, that your wife died 18 months ago, in order to win an argument. Some fib that was.

My wife did pass away. And eternal rest grant unto her. Thanks for your good wishes all the same Eddie, or whatever connection you have to him.

And that is why you mocked other people's wives on the very same thread?! If so, that is dark and twisted.

In response to other unrelated slagging, I made a joke earlier on that thread yes, about someones living and well wife, not mocked, and when they retorted, and went too far, I merely explained my situation, and they politely ceased. Unlike yourself I believe in letting the departed rest in peace, that's all. But thanks for your understanding Eddie, or friend of Eddies.

Yes. I believe you. I'm also friends with Eddie.
