Ruby Walsh made a rather unusual appearance at the Irish Examiner’s offices in Blackpool, Cork last week.
Dressed in full horse racing gear, the champion jump jockey posed for a new press ad and mingled with sports journalists in the build up to the newspaper's coverage of the Cheltenham Festival.
Ruby is currently combining his jockey skills with a weekly column in the Irish Examiner's racing supplement every Saturday and he gave staff a few insider tips on what they can expect from the festival.
The finished ad will feature in tomorrow's Irish Examiner but here's a sneak preview.
