Vivian Clarke going Nationwide

If you happen to be in watching the 6-One News on RTE TV on Monday, stay on for Nationwide and you'll likely see a familiar Kilcullen face, writes Brian Byrne.

Our own Vivian Clarke will be on as part of a feature on the Irish Derby Festival, in connection with his shop windows entry in the competition run in conjunction with the Festival.

He was approached earlier this week by a Nationwide crew, which was led as it happened by a former RTE colleague of mine, Mary Fanning.

He was in good hands there. So was she, given Vivian's Kilcullen Drama Group experience and ease with speaking in public ... they only had to do one take, for which he got compliments!

As they say, stay tuned, on Monday.
