    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

    €10,000 Offer For College - Aoife Kilbane

    We heard who our three finalists are for the Search For Sandy, Aoife Kilbane from Bearna, County Galway didn’t make it through to the final three.

    Aoife Kilbane (pictured above) spoke to John about the generous offer.

    She told us how she had secured a place in the London School of Music but she had to put it on hold for a year in order to raise the necessary funds. A very kind lady was taken back by Aoife last Monday, she admired very much how you spoke and the fact that you are willing to go abroad to follow your dream. This lady, has offered Aoife €10,000 to future her studies.

    Rebecca De Haviland

    Having a sex change, or gender reassignment is not something those with a gender identity disorder take lightly and it can be a long and difficult road. One such person who went through this is Rebecca de Havilland who spoke to John Murray this morning.
