    Pat Shortt on Kilkenny's Loss in the Hurling Championship

    Kilkenny fans are waking up this morning to the harsh reality that their team is out of this year's hurling championship. For Pat Shortt the occasion has provided an opportunity for a bit of mischief..

    Pat who is from Upperchurch, Co Tipperary. was watching the match over in London where he is currently appearing in the Cripple of Inishmaan. His kids were at the match.

    He was so delighted with Kilkenny being beaten by Cork yesterday that he tweeted a picture of himself laughing as Kilkenny manager Brian Cody was interviewed on television behind him. Brian Cody is looking quite glum.. and Pat is throwing his head back and laughing his head off.

    He wrote: Top is sad Kilkenny man. Below is happy Tipperary man.

    It was supposed to be just a tweet to his friends, to have a laugh. But then the Independent picked it up and put it up on their website.

    Paddy Campbell

    Irish sculptor Paddy Campbell has been selected by the Province of Florence to run a unique exhibition as a centrepiece in the renowned Palazzo Medici Riccardi museum in Florence. That is the same Paddy Campbell who was commissioned to do a portrait of President McAleese and a memorial to people lost at sea off Bantry Bay and he is also the man who owns Bewleys.

    Bach's Cafe Cantata

    Kate Kavanagh, a listener from Dublin, was listening to the previous piece with Paddy Campbell and sent in a request that we play this music from Bach to end the interview. Bach composed this mini comic opera while sitting in Cafe Zimmerman in Leipzig and she felt it would be a very apt way to celebrate coffee in tribute to Paddy Campbell and Bewleys.
