    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

    Here Are The Young Men

    Our next has travelled the world, experiencing earthquakes in Bogota and experimenting with psychedelic shamanism, but it took a trip to London before he realised what he really wanted to write about was his home town of Dublin.

    Rob Doyle (pictured above), spoke to John Murray this morning. 

    His debut novel, Here Are the Young Men, has been compared to modern classics such as Less than Zero and Trainspotting. It’s now been acquired by publishing giants, Bloomsbury and film rights are in the offing and Rob spoke to John this morning.

    Here Are The Young Men by Rob Doyle is published by Lilliputpress.
