An Irish dad pulled the most Irish Dad move of all time on holiday in Argentina

John Creedon was involved. Obviously.

JUST WHEN WE thought we’d heard it all, Irish dad-wise, one of them has to go and prove us wrong.

Towards the end of his show on RTÉ Radio One yesterday, John Creedon read out a message from a listener who was tuning in from South America.

Listening to you from Rosario in Argentina. It’s my 25th anniversary of marriage to Mary…
Aww, that’s so nice. They’re on holiday together to celebrate their anniversary.
Mary was supposed to here but had to cancel due to a family illness…
What? Mary’s not there?!
…but she will be listening to you as we often do back in Cashel.
Ah. Mary’s not there.
Would you please thank her for 25 wonderful years and a beautiful family. I’ll be back on Friday to show off my tango lessons.
Getting Creedon to do the dirty work for you. We see how it is.

Off in Argentina, sans wife, on his wedding anniversary, listening to John Creedon on RTÉ Radio One. Of course. Irish dads, never change.
