    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

    Amsterdam - Rainbow Group Foundation Project

    For years, a group of around 50 rowdy, aging alcoholics had plagued a park in east Amsterdam, annoying other park-goers with noise, litter & occasional harassment.

    The Rainbow Foundation Group tries to make it as easy as possible (for alcoholics) to live their lives & that they make as little as possible nuisances to the environment they are living in.  It’s a win-win situation for community & the alcoholics. Joining John from Amsterdam is Chulah Berkowitz of the Rainbow Group & Vincent who is on the scheme.
