Last night on Operation Transformation,(in assoc with Safefood) you'll have seen that Paudie & Sarah were very happy with their weigh-ins, we have a sneak preview of Marc's weigh-in& I won't give away exactly how much weight he lost, but suffice to say that he didn't reach his target! Aoife Hearne & Karl Henry were not pleased!
It's an iconic and historic part of our capital city, yet more and more people are simply using O'Connell Street in Dublin as a way to get somewhere else! Patrick Freyne from the Irish Times recently spent 24 hours on the street & he joins John in studio this morning to talk about his experiences.
Zervas & Pepperis an exotic sounding name for a music duo of, KathrynPepper and Paul Zervas. When you hear the duo you'll think of Californian sunshine & beautiful 60s harmonies. Joining John in studio for a chat & performance are Paul & Kathryn.
Their second album is called Lifebringer - gig at The Sugar Club on Thursday, 23rd January 2014.
When I met the 20 hopefuls for Operation Transformation last Autumn there were two sixty-something Kerrymen vying for a place – one is Paudie O’Mahoney, one of this year’s six leaders, but I also enjoyed my conversation with Richard Harnettand we promised to keep in touch with him on the programme.
Richard runs the Castleisland Mart and along with Mary Fleming, chairperson of the IFA Farm & Familycommittee, he is trying to get to grips with the issue of rural isolation. Richard and Mary want the men of Kerry to join them in conversation & in walks. They join John from the Radio Kerrystudio in Tralee to explain the initiative.
