The case for following Marty Whelan on Twitter

He has a wonderful appreciation for moustaches,

MARTY WHELAN IS a national treasure. He’s the voice of our Eurovision coverage, the owner of the finest moustache in the land and quite simply, a very lovely man. We don’t need examples of Marty being a very lovely man but he’s out there anyway, giving us examples every day for free, via his Twitter.

Oh yes, over on Twitter EVERY day is a Marty Party.

A couple of weeks ago you may have read my piece begging you to follow ‘Duck of the Day’ on Twitter to give yourself a break from all the shite in the world. Marty Whelan is doing this as well with the added benefits of it being Marty Whelan.

For example, did you know you needed Marty Whelan on a Vespa in your life?

Or pictures of a younger Marty with a fabulous moustache?

He appreciates other moustaches too.

But it isn’t all just moustaches and selfies. No, no Marty is also here to offer his takes on the news of the day. He does it with the air of your Dad who is a little bit fed up with everything and can’t understand why everyone is so miserable.

He doesn’t have time for whining.

Or thinking about Christmas in August.

Most importantly Marty wants more hair, not less!

One of the best parts though is that Marty is appreciated by everyone. He gets presents from his listeners to his RTÉ Lyric FM show.

Sometimes, alcohol is involved.

Other times, he just gets the best merch made for him.

In conclusion;

We should ALL be following Marty Whelan on Twitter. Our lives will be much improved once we do.
