Pat Kenny--Wikipedia

"Nickname in college was "The Plank" because of his tendency to 'get wood' at inappropriate times. Is reported to have bedded over 40 show girls. Was once a trainee priest, but was forced to leave the seminary over allegations of sexual relations with a nun. Was once suspected of being "The Midnight Commando", a Batman-style vigilante who fought night crime in late 1970s Dublin Once claimed to have travelled to space in "a giant hat". No-one believed him. Except Sven. Was recently associated with huge shipments of rhoyhypnol into Ireland Sleeps naked in a polythene bag which he believes gives him great sexual prowess. Hobbies include bending hot ones into unsuspecting interns. Reputed to have introduced the phrase "sweating like a rapist" into the vernacular after using it while he thought that the mike was off on his morning radio show. Likes to get bonged up when he has some free time. Is very superstitious and insists on eating a newborn baby mandrill before each episode of the Late Late Show. Has been known to do his weekday radio show in the nude on occasion. Avid music fan who has a record collection of over 120,000 albums. His lifes ambition is to meet and interview Mr. David Hasselhoff."

Have a look at Gerry Ryans,

"Gerry Ryan was born in Dublin. He studied law at Trinity College, Dublin and went to work as an apprentice solicitor. He joined RTÉ in 1979 where he presented a selection of speech and music based programmes on Radio 1 and Radio 2 (as RTÉ 2fm was known then). He was a sniper in the GPO in 1916."

Somebody seems to have been messing with Ryan Tubridy's aswell:

Most of it seems OK, except for this line: "He is a grandson of Todd Andrews, a member of the Irish Republican Army and one of the founding members of Fianna Fáil"

Oh wait, after having looked at Todd Andrew's wiki, I just realised i took that up wrong
It probably should be "He is a grandson of Todd Andrews, WHO WAS a member of the Irish Republican Army and one of the founding members of Fianna Fáil"

My mistake! Still funny though!

Its wikipedia, anyone can change it.

Its not clever and its not funny to vandalise it.

I'd revert all this childish nonsense myself but I couldn't be arsed.
