Dixie Elliot ✍ Ryan Tubridy's new agent, Danny Healy-Rae, has told an RTÉ News reporter that he has applied for the vacant newsreader's job with BBC.
Healy-Rea said that Ryan Tubridy isn't available for comment at present as he doesn't know yet that he's his new agent and that he applied for the job without telling Tubridy.
"Would you be havin' a pint with me before you be on your way?" Healy-Rea asked the reporter.
"I will indeed, thank you."
"Then it's your round, that'll be €150!" said Healy-Rea.
"A €150? That's a bit steep for two pints!"
"It's traditional that new-comers buy everyone a drink in this pub." said Healy-Rea.
"But there's only you and me here!"
"Ah now, don't you worry a thing about it, I'll see to it that everyone else gets a pint when I open the bar... Will you be havin' a wee whiskey with that pint?"
