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.

UPDATE: Our show at Glór in Ennis on the morning of Sunday 4 March is unfortunately cancelled due to the weather conditions. Our thanks to all at the Ennis Book Club Festival and Glór, and we plan to be back to Ennis at a later date. All ticket holders will be refunded by Glór.
