    Singer songwriter - Sinead O'Connor

    It's been a busy few months for Sinead O'Connor, from announcing she would no longer be singing "Nothing Compares 2U", news that she's an expectant grandmother & an application to join Sinn Fein to writing a new national anthem for Ireland & of course touring the chart-topping album "I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss".

    Sinead joins Brendan in studio this morning.

    Listen

    Jim McGuinness

    As  Donegal Football Manager,  Jim McGuinness became an almost mythical figure, winning 3 Ulster titles & one All-Ireland title. He has since moved over to Celtic, who are on top of the Scottish Premiership. Jim joins Brendan this morning ahead of his talk at 'wellbeing in the workplace' seminar in Croke Park later today.

    Gifted Children

    Last week we played a clip of a 7 week old Belfast baby who could talk & we asked you to get in touch if you had a talented youngster. Sinead Keays wrote to us about her "exceptionally able child" & Brendan met with Lily aged 5 & her parents Sinead & Ghilanda. Also joining Brendan in studio this morning is psychologist, Dr. David Carey.
