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're looking for your ideas for Minister Leo Varadker on growing tourism in Ireland. Brenda gets an update from the Mooney Show wedding couple and 15 years to the day from when they officially formed, we get the lowdown on life for some of those who missed out on a career in Westlife

Leo Varadker

Leo Varadker

This year we have seen the Government’s Gathering initiative unfold. The good news is that figures are up – by over 6 per cent in the first 5 months of 2013 compared to the same period last year. That translates as 2 and a half MILLION visits to this little island so far this year.

So is it the case that The “Gathering” is gathering momentum?

Two years ago, and only a month in office, Dr. Leo Varadkar, Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, came into this very studio and responded to your calls and emails about what needed to be done to get this country’s tourism back up and running…

And he has come back in today to take more of your ideas from you… and to tell us about how his whether his ambitions for the Tourism Sector while he is in office are on target!!!

Westlife Began 15 years Ago Today

Westlife Began 15 years Ago Today

They became the biggest boyband in the world – Westlife of course. It all started for the 5 boys on this day 15 years ago and the hits like Unbreakable, Flying Without Wings and Uptown Girl just kept coming, one after another.

But if we rewind just a little earlier a boyband called I.O.You with a song called Together Forever Girl.

The man who actually owns that song is Aidan Mannion, who runs The Record Room, a music store in Sligo.

Aidan tells Derek the story of how I.O.You became Westlife
