Stop. The. Lights.
Dave Moore revealed on air today that he has never eaten a boiled potato.
An incredulous Dermot Whelan nearly fell off his chair when Dave delivered the news and within minutes listeners began sending in their go-to boiled potato recipes along with massive amounts of stick directed at Dave.
This revelation has caused the nation to come to a shuddering halt. @DaveTodayFM has NEVER eaten a boiled potato. Is he even Irish? @DermotTodayFM and the rest of Ireland can’t cope. Reply with you boiled potato recipes for Dave here â¬‡ï¸ #DermotAndDave pic.twitter.com/mPma1gMZ1C

Brian in Wexford couldn't believe his ears when he heard the news, 'What the actual F Dave. How could you get to your age without ever eating a boiled spud, in it's jacket. Eat skin and all there's nothing nicer especially new potatoes in the autumn fresh out of the ground.'
Dave was advised to try a boiled Marris Pipers potato with butter, while Katie in Waterford told Dave to steam the potatoes in their jacket to keep nutrients in. Then peel when cooked.
Lisa in Laois recommends a small bit of hot milk added to the mashed potatoes.
One texter told Dave to keep it simple, 'Nothing better than pealed boiled spuds with a lump of Kerry Gold, let it melt, add a bit of salt and devour it!'
But we think this text sums it up best - 'Dave you need a slap - regards Mick T.'
All we know for sure is that there will be a heap of Dermot & Dave listeners eating boiled spuds for dinner tonight.
Dave.... won't be.
