    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

    Jimmy Dunne with dad Eamonn

    Well, it's a dream for many young boys... to get picked to try out for a Premiership soccer club & when that club is Manchester United, where players like Roy Keane, Denis Irwin & John O'Shea have starred, it's the chance of a lifetime. This is what exactly happened to 15 year old Jimmy Dunne, who's from Blackrock, in Co Louth who joins Kathryn on the line this morning, along with his father Eamonn.

    Alan Caulfield Metro Herald

    A 'missed connection' is defined as a type of personal advertisement which arises after two people meet but are too shy, or otherwise unable to exchange contact details.  Publications around the world including Ireland’s Metro Herald publish 'Missed Connection' classifieds which enable people to write the details of their chance encounter, in the hopes that the other person will check & they’ll be reunited. Joining Kathryn in studio is Alan Caulfield.

    The Worker in 1913

    Last week, during the bus drivers' strike, there was a lot of talk of the pay and conditions of the worker in Ireland in 2013... but how does it compare to a year when the pay and conditions of workers led to huge changes in Irish society?  Shane Mac Thomáis is a historian and resident author in Glasnevin cemetery & has been taking a look at the records of 1913.  This morning he joins Kathryn in studio.

    Mindfulness in the Classroom

    We're always hearing what a stressful job teaching is and, this summer, 500 primary school teachers took part in an online course in mindfulness. We have two teachers with us this morning to tell us about – among other things – teaching meditation to senior infants! Bridie O’Grady is in our Limerick studio & Aoife O’Boyle is in studio in Dublin. 

    The picture here shows a young student with a Hoberman Mini Breathing Sphere, which helps awareness of how you breath.
