    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

    Faery Tree Cleanup

    Have you noticed an old torn tree while rambling through a park or walk around the country. In olden times they would have been associated with Holy Wells, although the practice goes back into the mists of time. It’s not always good news for the trees themselves though, and John spoke to Carmel Diviney who has started a Facebook campaign to save a couple of particularly significant Fairy Trees at Tara.

    If you want to be involved in the next cleanup, it'll be on Sunday 27th of July at 3PM at the Hill of Tara, for more information click here.
