AH, GO ON, GO ON, GO ON
Heading north west? For lunch, or a really swell afternoon tea, head to The Village Tearooms in pretty Dromahair, Co Leitrim. Here, you can indulge in delights including croissants, quiches, chocolate eclairs and hummingbird cakes, to the gentle rustle of Japanese lanterns overlooking the River Bonet.

What is your hangover cure?
Nando’s — delivered to the front door.
What do you drink? Are you careful about what you eat?
I go through phases, but to be honest, I like to cook something that’s quick, and that you can do easily, with healthy options — such as a piece of salmon and roasted tomatoes with baby potatoes. It takes 20 minutes, max.
Are there any foods you have had to cut out or cut down on that you miss?
You do miss little things, living in another country. An English breakfast is not the same as a full-Irish breakfast. They also don’t have proper brown bread like you get at home.
What’s your perfect family meal?
Christmas Day. I’ve worked almost every Christmas Day in London at Sky Sports News since I moved six years ago, so hopefully this year I will be at home, having Christmas dinner with the family.

Spaghetti bolognese — you can’t go wrong. A glass of Whispering Angel rose wine. I’ve enjoyed Xico the last few times I was in Dublin. The food is great, as is the atmosphere. Sardines. An Asian beef dish my mum taught me to cook.
