Soccer Aid Raises £5.5 Million for UNICEF

Game’s over, and England won 7-6. Even though I wish the results had been different, I still enjoyed every minute of the very exciting and intense game! Nicky was the goalkeeper for World XI during the show’s second half and even the penalty shootout! He should be proud of everything he did, because even if the team didn’t win, he did a remarkable job.

Plus, want to hear some great news? Soccer Aid has raised £5,540,259 MILLION for UNICEF! Congratulations to everyone on all the hard work that certainly payed off!

Nicky & Jenny Make Donation to Pieta House

Last Friday, we received the sad news that DJ, Avicii died. His family released a statement, yesterday, alluding that he took his own life because he couldn’t deal with it anymore. Our thoughts are with his loved ones.

As you know, The Nicky Byrne Show holds a game everyday called You’re Some Laugh, where listeners have to guess the celebrity behind the laugh Nicky and Jenny are playing. The longer the listeners fail to guess the correct answer, the higher the prize money.

For many weeks, they had been playing Avicii’s laugh, but none of the listeners guessed correctly. Today, the show decided to donate all the money (€840) to Pieta House, who offers free, professional services across Ireland for people at risk of suicide & self-harm.

Very inspiring. Well done!

Nicky Byrne addresses Westlife reunion rumours

Nicky Byrne has set the record straight on those Westlife reunion rumours.

There was speculation recently that the band were getting back together, so sat down with Nicky to get the inside scoop.

Firstly, it appears that there are no immediate plans for Nicky to rejoin Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan on stage.

‘There is no truth in it! The thing about it is the four of us haven’t been in a room together since Jodi’s [Kian’s wife] mum’s funeral,’ he said.

‘That was the last time we spoke properly as a band, if you want to call it that.’

But there was some good news for fans of the boyband as Nicky was enthusiastic about the idea of the boys getting back together at some point.

‘I’d love to do a Westlife reunion as I hope would the other lads,’ the 2FM presenter said.

‘I wouldn’t love to do it now as I’ve got so much going on and I’m sure the other boys are the same.

‘So until we sit in a room and say what to you want to do? We don’t have a record deal but I’ve already heard labels that are interested.’

‘But we have discuss what kind of music we want to make. A big Westlife ballad, where does that sit with the current songs on radio? Where do we fit?

‘Not that we can’t fit, you look at Take That, they come out with great songs. That’s what I feel we would need to do.

‘I’d love to see all the fans again. I’d need to consider what would happen to the radio, can I take a sabbatical.’

‘I don’t know if we know when the right time for a reunion would be,’ the Dancing with the Stars host admitted.

‘I’d love to put a DVD on of a Westlife show with the four of us and have a few beers and laugh in a good way or what it used to be like!’

Nicky was chatting to us at the National Maternity Hospital Foundation coffee morning at Holles Street to celebrate World Prematurity Day on Friday 17th November 2017 supported by WaterWipes.

Drogheda based Irish Company WaterWipes has produced special “donate packs” for Prematurity Awareness Month. For every 60 pack sold, WaterWipes will donate 50c to the NMH Foundation and this will add to the total donation of €40,000 WaterWipes will make this year.

Singer Nicky Byrne shares heartbreaking story of birth of premature twins

Singer Nicky Byrne and his wife Georgina have opened up to about the birth of their premature twins ten years ago.

The couple welcomed fraternal twins Jay and Rocco in April 2007.

‘Ten and half years ago our world was thrown into chaos,’ he said. ‘Georgina was pregnant with twins and I was on a tour at the time.’

‘We’d just finished the European and UK legs of it and we were about to do a long run in the old Point Depot.

‘Georgina had two months plus to go on her pregnancy and she went in [to Holles St] for observation and they showed us around Unit 8. And we just thought they were giving us a tour.’

‘Georgina called me about 6am that morning and said “I’m in labour” and the twins were born about 9 that morning.’

But they were born 8 weeks and 2 days premature. They were in Unit 8, which is ICU.

‘They were in incubators. There was nothing we could do, Georgina was in recovery, the show must go on.

‘So I went and did the gig and that was our life then for six weeks, in and out.’

‘Nothing prepares you for that. We were both brokenhearted. Georgina would go home and express and then we’d bring the milk in and feed the boys.

‘They were weighed every night and they can’t really leave the hospital until they are over five pounds so Rocco was 2 pound 13 when he was born and Jay was 3 pound 11.

‘I think they were four or five weeks in hospital and we got Jay home first. And then a week later we got a phonecall to say Rocco was ready.

‘We went in together to get him and I got done for speeding on the way in!’

‘It was an amazingly tough time. When I was in there I met parents from all over the country who had nowhere to stay and slept in cars.

The boys are great now. They didn’t have any problems thankfully. They put on weight very quickly.’

Nicky was at the National Maternity Hospital Foundation coffee morning at Holles Street to celebrate World Prematurity Day on Friday 17th November 2017 and World Prematurity Month all November, supported by WaterWipes.
