TV presenter Sybil Mulcahy has revealed her children are pestering her for iPads for Christmas - but she won't be giving in.

"The kids are looking for iPads and everything but I'd rather get them some board games and crafts and things like that," she said.

"It's going to be a busy Christmas especially because my new show, Life, is starting January," she told the Herald.

Yesterday, Sybil was surveying another kind of shopping.

Tesco is to begin a service allowing customers to pick up shopping directly at Luas stops.

Similar services have already been rolled out in the UK, including a number that allow for collection at underground tube stations.

Tesco's 'Click & Collect' shopping service is free of charge and will be available seven days a week.

The service is meant as a stress-free method of shopping that saves time by having groceries ready for collection at a time and location that suits those using the Luas.

The service will be available at the Red Cow and Stillorgan.

Customers can choose a two-hour collection window to pick up shopping from designated collection points at the two Luas stops.

Tesco is promising that all products are packed on the day of collection with a turnaround time of five minutes when customers arrive to collect their shopping.

Sybil Mulcahy said it will take all the hassle out the supermarket.

"You can order online the day before and there'll be someone waiting at the Luas stop with you're groceries. Plus there's no limit and it's free," she said.

"No one wants to spend their night getting in the groceries."

Anyone who uses the service from today to December 5 will be entered into a draw to win six-months free Tesco Click & Collect shopping vouchers worth €2,700 and a Luas Adult All Zones annual ticket worth €910.
