The Once a Week Show with Dustin and Sinéad from Sinéad's House Where Dustin Likes to Hang is a television chat/comedy show, broadcast on RTÉ Two in 2007 and 2008. A successor to the more frequently aired Dustin's Daily News, it was presented by Dustin the Turkey of The Den, with his assistant Sinéad Ni Churnain as a co-presenter. More or less exactly the same as the previous show, only with a studio instead of a newsroom, plus the reduced daily to weekly frequency of the show. During the show's run the presenter was selected to represent Ireland at Eurovision Song Contest 2008.[1]
