"Drummer Boy" saves the day

Every Tuesday, The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show delves into the Gift Grub archives to bring us a classic Gift we haven't heard in ages, as suggested by our listeners.

This week's flashback transported us to the year 2005, where hauliers staged a go-slow protest in Dublin and caused all kinds of disruptions.

Being the man of the people he is, Bertie Ahern decided to ease the fuel price tension by becoming a haulage driver himself.

He rounds them up to the theme tune of the 1978 movie 'Convoy'. How perfect.

If you have a Gift Grub that you would love to hear again, email your suggestion to breakfast@todayfm.com
