    Sunday mornings mean Sunday Miscellany

    Its new radio essays and occasional poetry followed by complementary music capture our times, passions and curiosities. The contributor led content is selected from open submission and commissioned writing presented by new voices and established names.

    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 thousands across Ireland and the world.

    Sunday Miscellany's first live event of 2014 takes place later this month on Monday 30 June at 1pm in The Lewis Glucksman Gallery in UCC  to coincide with the acquisition by the university of the Great Book of Ireland and the current exhibition running in the Glucksman Gallery.

    Contributor to this event include Thomas McCarthy, Michael Coady,Mathew Sweeney,  Iarla Ó Lionnaird and Mel Mercier.

    Tickets can be booked for this event  through the Gallery via the email  on info@glucksman.org  or by phoning  021- 4901844.
