    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

    Richard Sadlier

    Last Sunday was a reminder of the wonderful spectacle of sport as Dublin beat Kerry in the all- Ireland semi final in a thrilling encounter that is being touted as the game of the decade . A few miles from Croke Park across the city lies St Patricks Institution & two Sundays ago another game was played within its high walls topped with barbed wire where ex professional footballer Richie Sadlier came out of retirement to put on his boots not to play but to referee the game. Richard joins Miriam in studio.
