    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

    Diane Croghan & son Alan

    John's guests in studio this morning are Diane Croghan & her son Alan. Coolock-based Diane Croghan brought up a family of eight – two of which are distinguished for very different reasons.

    With credits on Waking the Dead, The Bill and a major upcoming HBO series – Declan Croghan is one of Ireland’s most successful TV writers. While he was developing himself as a writer, his brother Alan put in a TV cameo.  Alan was a career criminal. Alan has since followed in his brother’s footsteps into writing.

    Alan's book is titled Wild Child a memoir of instant true crime & a story of personal redemption published by Penguin.
