Maura Higgins’ mother lands a spot on a new RTE advice show

Maura Higgins’ mother Sharon has landed a spot on a new RTE advice show called Agony OAPs.

The Longford woman has described herself as someone who “says it as it is” and will be doling out advice to young Irish people about their issues when the show airs.

People seeking advice will be able to email or tweet about their problems and will receive advice from Sharon and other personalities.

Former Minister Mary O’Rourke and GAA legend Pat Spillane have also been cast.
