RTÉ presenter Dáithí Ó Sé has revealed he is taking a nap in his dressing room before watching TV as he is still feeling the effects of Covid-19.
our months after we tested positive for the virus, the today Moderator still feels tired.
He commutes from Galway to the Cork studio every day, so he often takes a nap in his dressing room before the afternoon show.
“To be honest I was a bit tired for a while afterwards. I had some kind of flu, a cold, a bad cough and that was it, luckily it wasn’t too bad’, the Rose of Tralee moderator tells The Irish Mirror.
“But after that I was tired for quite a while. And I’ve kind of only come out in the last week or so to be honest.
“No matter what it is around 3 p.m., I always get tired at that time, and that’s showtime.
“I’ve often gone to sleep here from 1:30 to 3:00 a.m. over the past few weeks just to close my eyes for half an hour just to give myself that boost.”
The 45-year-old said he “doesn’t care” what people think of his daily nap.
He said: “There’s a nice seat in the dressing room and I pulled over another seat and had my legs up and that was it. And it’s good for you, I don’t care what anyone says.”

The Kerry native is preparing to host the Rose of Tralee again after it was canceled for the past two years due to Covid-19.
However, he said he hasn’t set out to do much work outside of his RTÉ show as he’s enjoying spending more time with his son Ogie, 8.
“I choose the things that I really want to do, that’s one thing, before the pandemic I was going to work every weekend and now I prefer to be at home,” said Dáithí.
“The young guy is eight years old and he trains and plays games on the weekends.
“And that’s where I want to be instead of working.”
