New series of Laois comedian and RTE commentator’s TV show gets underway tonight

This was a great laugh the last time – and we’re hoping the second installment will be just as good.

Laois comedian Bernard O’Shea has teamed up with RTE Sports presented Marty Morrissey for a road-trip around Ireland.

The pair first became friends after appearing on the same series of Dancing With The Stars in 2018.

They went on to record the first season of ‘Marty and Bernard’s Big Adventure’ in 2019 and it was such a success that they are back with a second series – ‘Marty and Bernard – On the Road Again’.

The first of the three part series airs tonight, Wednesday May 13, on RTE One at 9.35pm.

In this brand new series, Marty and Bernard meet various people from a variety of walks of life, from different communities around the country, who do remarkable things for their local areas.

Each week they will meet a new group, with whom they will set a challenge in order to fundraise for that group.

Tonight’s episode sees the pair meet the Ballybough Gaelic 4 Mothers & Others team.

And in one of the remaining episode, Bernard will bring Marty back to his native Durrow.

When there, they team up with the Durrow members of the Laois Fire & Rescue to help launch the Durrow Fire and Rescue Fundraising Calendar.

Catch episode one on RTE One at 9.35pm tonight.
