On today's Mooney, with Marty Morrissey,

Singer Tommy Fleming talks about the heartbreak of losing both parents within hours of each other, and we find out how the mathematical symbol Pi has relevance in everyday life!

Mooney Tunes

Mooney Tunes 7 will take place in the National Concert Hall on December 18th. The show will start at 8 PM, as usual. This concert has already sold out. In fact, it actually sold out on the day Derek announced it, a couple of weeks ago. HOWEVER, we are still looking for suggestions for this concert - pieces of music that you would like included. We've had quite a few e-mails already, but we are always open to hearing new stories, and inventive musical suggestions.

Because of the extraordinary demand for tickets, we've decided to organise a separate concert for the afternoon of the same day, December 18th. A full matinee concert, with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, and selected performers.

It's going to be a different concert from the evening show, with a different selection of music, and it's going to be just the thing for anybody doing their Christmas shopping in the morning time, in Dublin city centre, and who fancies a fabulous musical diversion in the afternoon!

We will be selecting a different program for the afternoon show. Different from the evening show. There might be a couple of pieces in common, but by and large, distinctive shows.

The Island Landscape

RTÉ Television, in association with Mooney, is currently producing a major new documentary series on the history of the Irish landscape. The series will tell the story of how our landscape was created after the last major climatic event – the end of the last Ice Age, over ten thousand years ago.  And we want your help!
