A Reunion Of One Of RTÉ’s Most Iconic Presenting Duos Has Taken Place

James Fenton

Back in the late 1990s, Jason Sherlock was the jewel in the crown of Dublin GAA and one of Gaelic Football’s first poster boys while Kathryn Thomas was just taking her first steps into the world of television presenting.

The paths of the two young stars would meet when they were paired together by RTÉ to front the youth-oriented sports show, Rapid. The show focused on educating Irish youngsters on all the goings on in sport in the country, particularly minority sports, and if you can’t quite remember it, the below clip should refresh your memory…

Two decades on and with the pair very much older and wiser, they’ve posed for a snap together which Sherlock posted on Twitter this evening along with the caption ’20 years later!

We wonder is Kathryn trying to persuade Jason to step out in front of the TV cameras again? Heady days indeed.
