    You would have thought those presenters would have done some basic research,typical americans living in an american bubble,that guy should have told them that in some parts of N.Ireland you can use euros and sterling,that would have really confused them!!!!

    His grasp of geography is poor aswell as he seemed to think Scotland and Ireland were part of the same island

    I suppose this raises a much broader issue about the quality of media, to be fair to the Irish and broader European media
    while u might not always agree with their approach on certain issues the presenters of particularly current affairs programmes
    are always well informed and on top of their brief as regards interviews etc
    If any Irish TV presenter carried out an interview like that they would never again appear on TV but i suppose it just shows
    how insular parts of the US media are and they really dont think a world exists outside of the US.
    If an Irish person did it we would talk forever about the embarassment they were to our country
    Blatant promotion should be outlawed
