AFTER 41 YEARS at the station, Pat Kenny announced today he will be moving from RTÉ to Newstalk in September.

Judging by the reaction on Twitter, where the topic trended worldwide, people are shocked by the departure.

We went out to get the public’s reaction in Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre, just beside Newstalk HQ in Marconi House, and where Pat will probably be picking up his lunchtime sandwiches in future.
