Mooney Goes Wild

    Sunday, 10am-11am, RTÉ Radio 1

       Mooney Tunes returns!        

    Mooney Tunes, the phenomenally successful Concert Series featuring the RTE Concert Orchestra, RTE presenter Derek Mooney, and the combined input of his many radio fans, will return to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre in December, 2015.

    This will be the 12th instalment of Mooney Tunes, which began in September, 2009. In the intervening period, over the 11 concerts to date, as many as 18,000 people have been entertained, over 170 pieces of music have been featured, all performed by around 50 top-class performers and soloists, backed by the RTE Concert Orchestra.

    A VERY MERRY MOONEY TUNES’ will take place on December 7, 2015, at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre. And for this show, we are encouraging fans to send us their musical suggestions along the theme of, "movies, musicals and magical memories!"

    We have never been short of magical stories from our audience, accompanying their suggestions for pieces to include in the Mooney Tunes programs. Whether it's a song that reminds you of a loved one, a particular soundtrack from your youth, a theme that evokes a particularly strong memory, let us know. And tell us your story!

    For further information, tune into the all-new Mooney Show, Saturday evenings, 6 PM until 7 PM, from Saturday, September 5 on RTÉ Radio 1

    And keep watching this space for updates and more details!

    Vampire Facelift

    Vampires are red-hot right now and we're not just talking about star-crossed, blood-sucking young lovers in books and television shows. Around the world women are undergoing a Vampire FaceLift. If you're spooked by needles or the sight of blood, this is not the beauty
    treatment for you. The Vampire FaceLift uses a part of your blood to try erase a few years off your face. Is the blood vampires crave really the secret to looking younger? Reality TV star Kim Kardashian apparently thinks so, and she tweeted a picture of her face covered in blood.

    Hedgerows: It is an offence to 'cut, grub, burn or otherwise destroy hedgerows on uncultivated land during the nesting season from 1 March to 31 August, subject to certain exceptions'. For more information, click here.
