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.

And coming up are two live events you may like to join us for: Sunday Miscellany Live at the Rolling Sun Book Festival, Town Hall Theatre, Westport, Co. Mayo, Sunday 19 November, 12 noon. Tickets available here;

and tickets are also now on sale for Sunday Miscellany Live at Christmas with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra at the National Concert Hall on Tuesday 12 December. Tickets available here.
