Hornøya's Seabird Colony

From June 10th to July 12th, you can follow a live show from a bird cliff on an island called Hornøya, in the distant north-east of Norway.  About 100,000 sea birds are nesting in the steep mountainside at Hornøya, near Vardø in Finnmark.

Today on Mooney...

We take tea with possibly the oldest wedding cake in Ireland, we tune up with buskers in Cork facing strict new codes of practice and on Canada Day we ask, what have the Canadians ever done for us?

Tea with Annie and her 1884 Cake

Brenda went to meet 91 year old Annie Fox and her cake from 1884.

 

 

 

Buskers in Cork

Buskers in Cork

The tradition of busking in Ireland has allowed many would be stars to hone their acts on the streets before going on to make it big in the music industry. Think of the likes of Glen Hansard, Mic Christopher or Paddy Casey, all of whom busked on Grafton Street, or the hugely successful guitar playing duo of Rodrigo y Gabriela, who also started out busking on the street. Or, what about the well known busker The Pecker Dunne, who busked at GAA matches and other events over the years.

With paying gigs getting harder and harder to get, busking can be a good opportunity to make a few quid. But, one Cork Councillor thinks new rules are needed, similar to ones being considered in Dublin, to police street busking. Brian O’Connell joins us now from our Cork studio and he has been hearing from buskers, Councillors and shop owners in Cork.
