No changes on the forecaster front
A POLL conducted by Dulux last week revealed that Ireland's favourite weather presenter is not Jean Byrne (inset below), as one might have thought. Nor is it TV3 presenter Martin King. In fact, according to the scientific analysis that was no doubt involved, our favourite forecaster is RTE's Evelyn Cusack (left).
Normally, I would pour cold water over such findings, but in this case I must compliment Dulux. Because at the TVNow Awards in 2009, a public vote was held to find out exactly the same thing, and following the casting of over 10,000 votes, the winner was Evelyn Cusack, followed by Martin King, with Jean Byrne in third place.
All of which goes to show that while the Irish weather may be changeable, our taste in weather presenters most certainly isn't.
