    On Sunday just gone, the sad news broke that one of the more prolific, and certainly one of the wittiest and most thoughtful members of the combined Boards.ie Radio & TV communities had passed away after a short but devastating illness.

    Noel Kenny, a Tipperary man who found himself in the county of Sligo, was better known to many here as Sligojoek. The thoughts and sympathies of his friends and acquaintances here are with his partner, his children, and his entire family, at this most difficult of times, and as they prepare for his funeral service tomorrow afternoon.

    May he Rest in Perpetual Peace.


    Turning to more mundane matters, it seems that the annual procession of plugs from "Friends of the Show" is upon us once again, as Hobbidy takes it upon himself to save every bookshop and artisan food producer in the country.

    "Friday night's Late Late Show will feature a range of local small-to-medium sized Irish businesses in the return of the popular slot dedicated to Taking Care of Business.

    After host Ryan Tubridy issued a national call-out on his Instagram for Irish businesses in October to apply to be in with a chance of featuring on the show, applicants responded in their droves from across the country."

    No more lamb related inventions, hopefully.

    Additionally, Clodagh McKenna is on again, again.

    "Also, on Friday night’s show, Irish chef and entrepreneur Clodagh McKenna and husband Harry Herbert will speak to Ryan about their lives together at his Highclere Estate, which is the filming location of ITV drama Downton Abbey."

    Little Adam King, is on again, again. They'll surely squeeze another Toy Show appearance out of him before the month is out.

    "Last year's break-out Late Late Toy Show star Adam King and his dad, David, will join Ryan ahead of the release of David's new book A Hug for You."

    I rarely drink on a Friday night - lord knows the LLS has driven me to the bottle on many occasions (f’nar f’nar).

    I shall however, raise a glass to sligojoek tonight.

    Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

    I noticed Sligojoe hadn't been around the last while, didn't think anything of it, was a bit of a shock seeing that thread earlier this week, weird having this feeling of loss for someone you've never met, anyway may he rest in peace.

    Oh my God. Sligojoek.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. So sorry.

    That's awful news.

  • I’d never actually met him In person, but chatted on WhatsApp and got to know him quite well. He texted a few times in the hours before his devastating illness, when he had a nasty tummy bug and said “think I’m on the mend”, but was nonetheless in his usual putting best face forward form.

    No thread with 10 minutes to go- just shows where we're at now.

    Anyway I'll post the line up in a minute once this thread creates itself. Hope all regulars are well.

    Friday night's Late Late Show will feature a range of local small-to-medium sized Irish businesses in the return of the popular slot dedicated to Taking Care of Business.

    After host Ryan Tubridy issued a national call-out on his Instagram for Irish businesses in October to apply to be in with a chance of featuring on the show, applicants responded in their droves from across the country.

    On this week’s show, 16 Irish entrepreneurs selected from all corners of the country will showcase their products.

    According to a statement, "These innovators will demonstrate their tenacity, resourcefulness and embody the spirit of optimism that will ignite a jobs-led recovery in a post-pandemic era.

    "The Late Late Show will be devoted to promoting the very best of what Irish businesses have to offer across various sectors and will exhibit a host of products from dozens of additional Irish businesses throughout the show."

    Also, on Friday night’s show, Irish chef and entrepreneur Clodagh McKenna and husband Harry Herbert will speak to Ryan about their lives together at his Highclere Estate, which is the filming location of ITV drama Downton Abbey.

    In fairness I think I'll actually watch it, or at least some of it, as some of the businesses can be quite good.

    Have to laugh at RTE though- "Wall Street" is on right after :D

    OMG- 1984 on TG4 00.35

    One to record- a great film with Richard Burton John Hurt and of course, that wonderful Eurythmics soundtrack.

    It's a tribute to Sligojoek.
