    The Lyric Feature

    When Summer's in the Meadow: Mary Brophy travels to the heartland of Irish-America to tell the story of one of our most iconic ballads, Danny Boy.

Programmes are produced in house by RTÉ lyric fm staff or in collaboration with independent production companies. Subject matter varies from week to week but most of the programmes aim to provide insight into music and music making.
