    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

    Schools out for Summer

    The big day has arrived & in the words of Alice Cooper, no more pencils, no more rule books, no more teachers, dirty looks! School holidays begin, but may bring a feeling of dread to many parents on how to fill those nine long empty weeks!  In studio with Miriam this morning to discuss ways of using the time in keeping your children  happy & busy this summer is Irish Times journalist & author Catherine Cleary.

    Catherine also wrote a book based on the idea of making the most of time of doing the things now we always think we will do someday, titled 'A month of Somedays'.
