Tallaght's Al Porter had a great first day on Today FM

Tallaght’s Al Porter took to the airwaves with his new Today FM show earlier, and the reaction from most has been very positive.

Having secured the 12pm-2:30pm slot, Porter is up against some heavy-hitters, but he certainly held his own today with a mix of music and chat with members of the public about topics including speed-dating in chippers and preparing bouquets of roses for the lovers of Limerick.

Starting with a brief introduction, the Tallaght man was quick to plug his much-loved local pub, The Dragon, while he also confirmed he likes hill-walking, spice bags and that he dodged paying the fare on the bus once.

Many had been looking forward to the first show, inlcuding Al's mam who even made him a packed lunch ahead of his Today FM debut.

The reaction on Twitter was pretty amazing too, as these users prove.
