Sunday with Miriam

An all-talking, all-singing, all-human-life-is-here show with Miriam O’Callaghan in the chair.

Charlene McKenna

Miriam talks with award-winning Monaghan actress Charlene McKenna. Since bursting onto our screens in Pure Mule, Charlene's career has skyrocketed with roles in Raw, Whistleblower, Jump and Single-Handed 2. She is currently on our screens in the BBC period drama Ripper Street, but she has also recently made her West End debut.

Eamonn Holmes

Legendary Belfast broadcaster Eamonn Holmes is the longest serving Breakfast anchorman in Britain, and this week Miriam chats to him about early mornings, family life, his worst interview moments and his love of Manchester United. Eamonn recently signed a 5 year contract with Sky, which will see him stay with the station until 2018. He is currently presenting the breakfast show Sunrise.

Opera Theatre Company

Opera Theatre Company

This week we have live music from the Opera Theatre Company, the national touring company of Ireland. This week members of the Bray and Navan Choral Societies join one of our most loved sopranos Virginia Kerr, who gives us the lowdown on their tour and they sing Joy to the World, I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls and O Holy Night. Their tour this time is all about Christmas favourites - previously their Christmas tour was based on the opera. As you can see below, they pick up a local choir at each venue.
