The Day I Met Bertie!

On my first day back in college in September this year, I had a message during my first lecture. A Client who owed me a few bob said they would be at my college in ten minutes and asked if I could meet them outside.

So, on my crutches I hobbled down the stairs and met my client, there were a few cars around and thought it was a bit busy.

I turn to head back into college when I see a couple of the guys from DCUFM, I head over in their direction.

The guys had been interviewing former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern for Studio One, Steve Conlon’s show on DCUFM.

Next thing I know, Bertie is standing there asking me what happened my poor old leg! He had broken his leg a while back and was sympathising with my dilemma.

After a quick chat I headed back into the lecture…
