In an interview with RTÉ TEN, the station’s online entertainment news service, he said he will be concentrating on his own show and he also talks about his “lighter side”, revealing his tastes in music, movies and TV… and his skills as a golfer.
Meanwhile, Pat Kenny has played down any suggestions that he will be making a return to TV presenting soon, insisting that he wants to give his new show on the Communicorp owned station time to ‘bed in’.
He also queried the decision by O’Rourke to include an Oliver Callan skit on the battle of the airwaves, saying“I don’t see why RTÉ would want to remind people I’m on another station.”
