ALONG WITH THE Bus Eireann ”Stand Clear, Luggage Doors Operatinnn” man, the lady who alerts you to the next Luas stop is only other A-List public transport voice in Ireland.

And on Friday, in a delightful turn of events, Snapchat star James Kavanagh was in Ranelagh filming for Seachtain na Gaeilge when he got to meet Doireann Ní Bhriain – the Luas lady herself.

And he got her to run through some of her most iconic lines – in both English and as Gaeilge

James shared the video on Friday evening and it’s been viewed over 110,000 times this weekend thanks to Doireann’s dulcet tones.
