    Mornings with Dave Fanning Search for Ireland’s Most Musical Family

    Brothers, sisters, cousins, in-laws, step fathers, grannies – the show is looking for families that play together to enter the competition. Non family members are permitted – as long as family is at the heart of it – as with The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem and The Fureys and Davey Arthur.

    Send us a 4’00 maximum clip performing the song or music of your choice – it does not need to be an original piece of music.

    Upload it to Youtube and email us the link to davefanning@rte.ie.

    You also need to send us a 100 word supporting paragraph telling us your story and why you should be chosen.

    The closing date for entries is 5pm on Wednesday  26th August.

    Our final will be held the first week in September and finalists need to be available then to perform before our judges.

    The judges’ decision is final.

    The prize courtesy of Waltons music is a Kurzweil CUP-2 Upright Digital Piano. For more information visit  www.waltons.ie

    Wedding Proposals

    If you were watching PJ Gallagher on tv recently you would be forgiven for thinking his wedding proposal to his girlfriend was less than impresssive! If you identify with that & find it difficult to come up with a romantic & original way to propose, Neil's guest on the line Sam Sheppard, may be able to help you.

    Listen

    Mindfulness follow-up

    At the beginning of the year we spoke to Tony Bates about his quest to live his life more mindfully in 2013. Many of you were captivated & inspired by Tony's story & a workshop on mindfullness was organised with Tony & a few or our listeners. Joining Neil in studio this morning is Tony Bates with one of his students, Grainne Bruce.

    For further information on Tony's organisation to to link below www.headstrong.ie

    Treasurer of Victoria, Michael O'Brien

    While Australia has become the focus for many young Irish people over the past few years as they leave in search of work, Neil is now joined this morning by an Irish man who has scaled the political ladder over there & is now looking after the finances of the state of Victoria in Australia. On the line to Neil, is Michael O'Brien, Treasurer of Victoria, to tell us about his work & Irish connections!
