    Anne Gildea's Memoir

    Miriams next guest in studio is well known as one part of the very successful comedy trio, The Nualas. We've spoken to her a couple of times on this show as she has recently undergone treatment for breast cancer. Anne Gildea joins Miriam in studio this morning to talk about her book, titled 'I've got cancer, what's your excuse'.

    It’s business as usual again from September 6th, when the Nualas start an autumn tour of the country, beginning at the Civic Theatre in Tallaght on Friday, Sept 6 & then onto the Hawkswell in Sligo on Saturday, Sept 7.
