The moment Dáithí Ó Sé fooled the people of Tipperary

The moment Dáithí Ó Sé fooled the people of Tipperary

Just when we thought we were on to the many April Fool jokes being played on us today, we came across the news that Dáithí was headed to the streets of Fair City and completely fell for it.

Turns out, the Kerry native is pretty convincing.

The Rose of Tralee presenter went live on Tipp FM’s Breakfast BLT to chat all about his new upcoming role as an Irish teacher in Carrigstown named Cathal Breathnach.

He explained that his role is all in aid of an RTÉ initiative to bring more of the Irish language to our screens and due to his thick West Kerry accent it will be the first time that they’ll have to use subtitles to help viewers understand the script.

Presenters Lorraine and Brian then went on to ask him about his character’s rumoured relationship with Niamh, but Dáithí advised them to keep an eye on his friendship with a specific painter named Damien.

Listeners of the early morning breakfast show were devastated to find out it was all an April Fools, as most were delighted to have more of the presenter on their screens.

To be honest, so were we - Damien and Dáithi has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
