98FM’s Dublin Talks to turn a fiver into €5,000

Daytime talk show “Dublin Talks” on Dublins 98FM, presented by Adrian Kennedy and Jeremy Dixon, is hoping to turn €5 into €5,000 for one lucky listener as part of their “Money for Nothing” promotion.

Kennedy and Dixon, whose show is one year on Dublin’s 98FM today, have taken to the streets of Dublin giving away fivers “for nothing” (- usually meaning for answering a simple question) to passing pedestrians on Fridays.

They started the promotion by giving out free cash on Dublin City Centre’s Henry Street:

The presenters were back on the streets again, handing out €2,000 in cash to shoppers, workers and homeless people on O’Connell Street last Friday, and have now decided to turn one of the €5 notes given out to the lucky punters on the day into €5,000.

In a clever promotion that has people all over the capital checking their wallets, they’ve shown a picture of the five-grand fiver, which has the serial code “465514”, on their web site, saying: “If you have, or can find this exact €5, before 12:00pm on Friday (13th March 2015) – call us at 98FM – and we’ll give you €5,000. SIMPLE.”

Show producer and co-presenter Jeremy Dixon today said that all of Dublin is going crazy looking for the banknote, adding: “People are posting on social media saying things like ‘I work in a shop and have been going through the till looking for the fiver’ .. they’re going mad looking for it, and who can blame them?”

If the prize is not claimed by Friday, a different code will be released the following week.

    Why was the church allowed to have an opinion/review the wording of the same sex ref, if they themselves are not getting married? And why was the voter/taxpayer not allowed to review the wording if the government are so unsure of what they are doing? This is the same church that hid behind “Cannon Law” and did not have to adhere to Irish state constitutional law. By watering down the same sex marriage ref it has turned into “Civil Partnership 2” a government PR exercise by a battered government wasting taxpayers money, and who still have not ratified Eu anti -discrimination Protocol 12.
    Who are Equality Ireland and do they actually live in Ireland with USC and Water Tax destroying Irish families/ Irish Taxpayers / Irish economy? We have the population of Manchester who are run by a council. We have the highest, best overpaid politicians in Europe (salary plus expenses averaging 147k and multiple pensions paid before legal age of retirement on leaving office pre 70yrs ) and probably the world who are still unable to govern the population of a UK city fairly and in a accountable, transparent manner. We have a third world health care system, a non existant Eu housing policy for decades. With medical cards cancelled, pensions hit, Social Welfare hit whilst our beloved politicans were able to access their pensions whilst working?

      Er… I think you’re in the wrong place here, M Kelly… this is an article about a radio show giving out a pile of cash. It’s got nothing to do with the referendum. I think what you’re looking for is… a news web site. Thanks for playing though 🙂
