Mornings With Dave Fanning

    Monday - Friday, 9 - 10am

    Mornings with Dave Fanning Search for Ireland’s Most Musical Family

    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

    Save the Spud Campaign

    Bord Bia have issued a warning, they say that the humble spud is not being loaded into our shopping trolleys as much as it used to be. It's being replaced by other carbs, rice, pasta, couscous & whatever you're having yourself. Is this the end of the road for the potato? We say NO!

    We have some potato lovers on the line to John this morning, Sarah McCann, Niamh Boylen, Carol O'Rourke & Susan Lindsay.
