Miriam's next guest has had several hit TV series & runs of sold out shows in some of the country's top comedy venues. She is one of Ireland's all-time most successful comediennes, she is of course Katherine Lynch. While we primarily associate Katherine with comedy, she is a woman of many talents, as her music album 'Settling Dust' contains a lot of original material dealing with themes as diverse as loss, love, fathers & home. Katherine is in studio with Miriam to tell us about her comic heros & album.

Andy Hynes features in BEYOND BELIEF – the TV series presented by Mick Peelo. It goes out on Monday night at 11.15pm on RTÉ One TV, & Monday’s programme is all about forgiveness.
