    A lively mix of entertainment, human interest and lifestyle, presented by John Murray.

    Here Are The Young Men

    Our next has travelled the world, experiencing earthquakes in Bogota and experimenting with psychedelic shamanism, but it took a trip to London before he realised what he really wanted to write about was his home town of Dublin.

    Rob Doyle (pictured above), spoke to John Murray this morning. 

    His debut novel, Here Are the Young Men, has been compared to modern classics such as Less than Zero and Trainspotting. It’s now been acquired by publishing giants, Bloomsbury and film rights are in the offing and Rob spoke to John this morning.
