Dermot and Dave hit the road for nationwide tour

Published

on

THE catchphrase “Ah sure, lookit!” will be ringing out across Ireland’s highways and byways as Today FM Duo Dermot and Dave take to the roads for a nationwide comedy tour which will lead them to the INEC Killarney on March 16, 2017.

The radio show’s lunchtime presenters, Dermot Whelan and Dave Moore, will present the ‘Ah Sure Lookit’ tour in what is the first time the pair has taken to the stage for a comedy gig.
They debuted their comedy show at the first Cork Comedy Festival in September of this year and the following month at the Vodafone Comedy Carnival in Galway. Both shows sold out in record time.

Dermot and Dave are well used to each other, having worked together in radio for over 12 years. The tour will take in almost every corner of Ireland with 15 dates scheduled from March to 2017.
Asked what people can expect from their stand up show, Dermot Whelan said: “Imagine a bonkers radio show that grows legs and arms and a head and starts firing out craic and waving its arms like an angry King Kong in that movie. Not even close.”

Dave Moore added: “It’s all our listeners’ favourite characters, stand-up, improvised comedy, music and an interactive gardening segment – what’s not to love?!”
Listeners to The Dermot & Dave Show on Today FM will be familiar with their weekly ‘Ah Sure Lookit’ feature where friend of the show ‘Mac from Carlow’ gives random clues and people are asked to guess what it is Mac is talking about. Although the comedy show has nothing to do with the feature, the lads just like the name!

Tickets, €29, go on sale from Thursday, December 8, from www.inec.ie, www.ticketmaster.ie or from the INEC box office on 064-6671555.

Are you happy and where you want to be with your health, where you want to be financially or are you going through the motions each day, unsure of your purpose?

Are you supported by others when you’re struggling or only supported by others when things are going well?
Are you looking forward to the next five, 10, 20 years of your life?

If you answered “no” to any of these questions, I encourage you to look around at the people you spend your time with. Your time is your most expensive asset. Your mind is your most expensive real estate.

With whom you spend your time, and those that you permit to impact your thoughts and decisions will have a great impact on your life.

From the outside looking in, our gym culture is the most difficult health benefit for others to understand.
Now more than ever all our brains are fed is chaos, division, selfishness and negativity. We can’t have that here. Those that thrive in that environment aren’t a good fit for us, and they won’t last long here. Either they’ll leave on their own, or we’ll tell them it’s time to go.

Years ago, when I was struggling with some people decisions (personally and business); one of my mentors told me something that continues to stick with me. It’s since been something I have said to people many times;
“The people that have helped you get to where you are may not be the same people that can help you get to where you want to go.”

Ask yourself these three questions;

* Who’s in your circle?
* Who do you need to start spending less time with?
* In order to get where you want to be, what kind of people do you need to start spending more of your time with?

Now it’s time to get to work. Start spending less time with those dragging you down. Start surrounding yourself with the people that won’t condone your behaviours that aren’t consistent with your goals, support your work ethic, help you to learn from your failures and will be excited to celebrate your successes.

When you are ready, we are here to help. Book your complimentary consultation by visiting our website www.activate.ie.

70 toddlers from Currow Play School have become Ireland’s littlest fundraisers as they stepped out to raise vital funds for vulnerable children.

They took part in the Barnardos Big Toddle which this year has the theme of ’Community Helpers’.

Barnardos currently works with just under 18,000 children and families across Ireland and the funds raised will support Barnardos Early Years services.

“This year, Currow Play School turns 25 and we have been taking part in Barnardos Big Toddle since 2006, which is 18 years of toddling in aid of vulnerable children,” Catherine Fleming form Currow Play School said.
“Our toddle is a highlight for the children and the team every year. It’s fantastic to get the little ones involved in something so worthwhile at a young age, it’s always a great day of fun. Barnardos provides a huge number of services in communities across Ireland, but these can only continue with help from the public. The toddle runs throughout June so I would implore anyone with toddlers or wobblers at home to sign up for Barnardos Big Toddle supported by Pipin Pear today.”

Anyone wishing to take part can register today at www.barnardos.ie/bigtoddle.
