    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

    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.

    The judges’ decision is final.

    Framed Photo & Marty Morrissey

    John's first guest this morning is Corinne Mannion, owner of Ashford Manor guesthouse on the College Road in Galway, to talk about the common requests she would get from guests, but one in particular stood out & this unusual request came from guest, Danielle Smith, who is also on the line to John.   Also joining them on the line is Marty Morrissey!


    Band Management

    Band manager Paul McGuinness is stepping down as U2's manager. John is joined by Frank Murray of Hill 16 Management (he managed Thin Lizzy, The Pogues & a host of others) & we are also joined from our Galway studio by Olaf Tyaransen of Hotpress who has interviewed Paul a number of times.
