    The Rolling Wave

    With this year's Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy starting in a month's time we hear music and song recorded in previous years at this most enjoyable week-long traditional music event

    About The Show

    Named after a famous traditional Irish tune, The Rolling Wave is a sharp ear and a close eye on the world of traditional and folk music in Ireland.

    Competition

    Congratulations to the two winners of the Rolling Wave January quiz: Michael Cronin of Ballincollig and Dan Buckley of Loughlinstown.  There was a very good response and these winners were judged to be the best two of the many entries we received – but it was a close run thing! The prizes are copies of the new CD Didn’t She Dance and Dance by Paudie O’Connor and Aoife Ní Chaoimh.

    For the new quiz, the singing group Lynched have given two copies of their new CD Cold Old Fire. One of the songs on it is Daffodil Mulligan – her mother was of course Biddy Mulligan and we want to know where was Biddy Mulligan from?
