Sunday Miscellany

The programme's new radio essays and occasional poems, interspersed with complementary music, capture our times, passions and curiosities.  The content is selected mostly from open submission, with some commissions. Submissions are welcome from new and established writers alike.

Reportage, appreciations, memory pieces, poetry, travel writing and personal accounts of events and happenings are the stuff of Sunday Miscellany.  The programme is part of Sunday mornings since 1968.  It is essential listening to many thousands across Ireland and more around the world.

Coming up: Sunday Miscellany Live at the Red Line Book festival at the Civic Theatre in Tallaght at 6pm on 15 October, with writers Dermot Bolger, Eileen Battersby, Eileen Casey, Cyril Kelly, Rosaleen McDonagh and Sara Shine, and music from the Far Flung Trio and Crash Ensemble flautist Susan Doyle and clarinetist Deirdre O'Leary. Tickets are available here:
