    Gift Grub: Mary Lou Reveals The Only Valentine's Day Proposal She's Interested In

    "He's saying 'Hip Hip Horr-ahh"
    Some of our nation's politicians are feeling pretty despondent following the results of #GE2020.
    Leo's coming to grips with the fact that he's now a caretaker Taoiseach and Richard Boyd Barrett can't even muster up the appetite for some breakfast lobster.
    It's a different picture over at Sinn Fein headquarters however as Mary Lou was only too eager to point out.
    Is that a muffled David Cullinane we hear....?!

    Shauna's School Run

    Shauna's School Run

    ROAD TRIP!
    Our researcher Shauna O'Reilly headed off to meet the students from Adamstown Educate Together and she spoke to all the kids from Mr Kennedy, Ms Buckley, Ms Harrison and Mr Macilwaine’s first and second classes, who were FULL of chat.
    Thanks to Mr Kennedy for organising the visit and for secretary Katie for being so welcoming!
    She chatted to Malik Abbas, Yasin, Jude, Esma, Rohan, Sanvi, Alex, Eilish, Adavita, Adam, Saifullah, Anynanashe, Matylda, Aarav, Neila, Abdul Malik, Naysay, Riga and Kevin.

    Back To School!
    Earlier in the week, we spoke about the Irish average for pocket money which is €6 per week so Shauna asked the children if they thought this was true and if they felt children needed more or less money.
    She also quizzed them about sharing things and asked them about the one thing they would definitely not share.

    If you'd like Shauna to visit your school, email your details to breakfast@todayfm.com now.

    "Stop tweeting the sausage Matt"
    As the dust settles on #GE2020 spare a thought for the journalists who were in the trenches day in, count out, reporting every fact.
    They got very little sleep, survived only on a diet of coffee and adrenaline and now that the whole thing is over, some are left feeling a little bereft.
    Some journalists are even suffering with a bad case of Post Election Stress Disorder.
    We were taken behind the scenes in the country's first 'journalist recovery unit' to find out more.
