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 at Culture Night, Friday 22 September, 7.15pm, Dublin Castle Chapel. Admission is free, but tickets must be pre-booked.
