In November of last year, TV3’s Noel Cunningham, along with his camera crew, visited St Mary’s NS, Drumlish.
On the search for the Ireland AM ‘Local Legend’, the crew visited Jamie Nertney, who nominated his grandfather Paddy Nertney for the title.
TV3 carried out their search around the country, visiting each county to find their local legend. National school pupils were invited to nominate someone that they felt deserved the title.
On Monday last, Jamie and his grandfather appeared on Ireland AM, where they joined the rest of the local legends for the final. Each child got a chance to explain why their nominee should win the competition.
For nominating his grandfather, Jamie has won a trip to Tayto Park with a group of friends. Paddy is also in the running to win the trip of a lifetime.
To see how Jamie and Paddy got on, and to find out how to vote for Paddy as Ireland AM’s Local Legend, visit www.tv3.ie/ireland_am.php.
