    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

    The 38 Most Haunting Abandoned Places On Earth

    Christy Kenneally describes some of the abandoned sites on the list of the 37 Most Abandoned places on earth:

    Pripyat (and Chernobyl) are the ones most people will have heard something about; the city was abandoned in 1986 at the time of the nuclear accident. 

    Gulliver's Travels lasted only ten years in Kawaguchi. Despite the fact that it was at the foot of Mt Fuji and in a prime location with the massive tourist run off from the holy mountain.

    Six Flags New Orleans Jazzland Theme Park is still abandoned and looks like something out of a Steven King horror movie. The theme park was damaged and closed after Hurricane Katrina
