    Buddhist Meditation

    Millions watched Ireland's Ryan Dolan take to the Eurovision stage in Malmo. After the show he revealed one of his secret weapons in the battle against nerves, was Buddhist meditation. By all accounts it seems to be a growing trend among musicians, actors & performers.  In studio with Miriam are two Buddhists, Aoife Cortney, Theatre Direactor & choreographer & Eileen O'Sullivan, singer.
