The Ryan Tubridy Show will be broadcasting live with RTÉ Radio 1 as the show visits the Wild Atlantic Way from Monday 30th to Thursday 2nd June.
The first broadcast, fulfilling a commitment Ryan made on the Late Late Show, will be from Buncrana.
Tubridy who famously brought his ‘Bucket and Spade’ tour to Bundoran some years ago, will be broadcasting live this time from four locations on the Wild Atlantic Way, his Donegal stop on May 30th the first of those.
While Tubridy may be slight of build, there’s not much chance of missing him, as they have a bus with them this time - and not just any old bus.
No, at enormous expense no doubt, people from Donegal to Clare, will as a press release stated, have the chance to see “the visual spectacle of the first Wild Atlantic Way and RTE Radio 1 bus - branded from top to toe with Wild Atlantic Way and RTÉ Radio 1 branding and Ryan’s image - travelling the Wild Atlantic Way taking in some key Discovery Points.”
The four live broadcasts will be from:
Buncrana, (Monday, 30th May) - Main St. Buncrana;
Strandhill in Sligo (Tuesday, 31st May), The Seafront on Strand Rd (beside the Strandhill Surf Shop);
Clifden, Co Galway (Wednesday 1st June) – The main Market Square (outside EJ Kings bar and restaurant);
Kilkee, Co. Clare (Thursday, 2nd June) – The West End Car park near the Pollock holes.
Ryan will be interviewing some local tourism businesses from the surrounding area and discussing some of the many activities and experiences available to anyone touring the Wild Atlantic Way. You can follow Ryan's journey on Twitter @wildatlanticway
