    He talks about using pointy sticks with charts on tv in the old days..Ophelia, meteorology etc
    Now he is moving from MetEireann to _______?

    That's after Joanna Donnelly & Siobhan Ryan were on Radio1 on 13th

    Gerald Fleming has announced his retirement

    Whilst he hasn't been doing forecasts for a while (he is now head of forecasting) I have to say on a personal level and after meeting him and seeing him deliver a number of presentations, he is a world class professional and an utter gentleman.

    He cannot be wished anything but a long, happy and healthy retirement.

    Always enjoyed Gerald's style of presentation.
