Beat Breakfast’s Trish, who is originally from Jamaica, officially becomes an Irish citizen this week at a special ceremony at the National Convention Centre.

To mark the occasion, Niall and Vinny had been preparing her all week with a series of ‘Irishness’ quizzes, which you can listen to below.


But that wasn’t all. We had a little surprise for Trish flying outside the Broadcast Centre.

So, how did our self-proclaimed ‘Jirish’ presenter react?

Speaking after the surprise, a totes emosh Trish had some touching words for her colleagues.

“When you emigrate – you just don’t know what’s going to happen”, she said. “You just don’t know how people will accept you.

“It just feels like I’ve been accepted. It feels like you guys have said you’re welcome & we love you.”
