# go on dobbo
Sharon Ní Bheoláin called Bryan Dobson 'Dobbo' on the Six One earlier
And the country is DELIGHTED.

Bryan-and-Sharon-Six-One-new-set-20092 RTÉ RTÉ

THE LATE LATE TOY Show magic is strong in RTÉ tonight. So strong, it’s even got the normally super serious Six One News team all giddy.

After a thoroughly delightful segment on the Toy Show, the camera cut back to a giggling Bryan Dobson and Sharon Ní Bheoláin, who then uttered these words:

No, go on Dobbo – you go.

Who’d have thought the country’s fond nickname for the veteran broadcaster would ever be mentioned on the news itself?

Naturally, the viewers at home were delighted with this nugget of informality.

Dobbo, to get her back, you have to call her Shazza. Live on air, at your earliest convenience. We believe in you.
