On today's programme, Miriam will be looking ahead to this afternoon's big match against France in the company of Irish football legend, Paul McGrath. Paul will be recalling his remarkable path from Dublin from Dublin's orphanges to Old Trafford, and choosing his favorite music. 

Leo Brennan RIP

Leo Brennan RIP

This week saw the death of one of the greats of Irish music, Leo Brennan.  Leo toured Ireland with the Slieve Foy Band before setting up his famous bar, Leo’s Tavern, with his wife Baba, in Meenaleck, Co. Donegal.  The couple’s children who worked in the bar went on – with their uncles - to form the band, Clannad.  The bar remains a music Mecca and has played host to stars like Bono, Edge, and Christy Moore.  Sunday with Miriam was lucky enough to do a full show from Leo’s pub in June 2015 with performances from Clannad, Altan, and many others.  But the highlight was talking to the man himself, almost 90 at the time, who spoke beautifully to me about meeting his wife, Baba, and sang The Homes of Donegal.
