    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

    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

    Upbeat on Air

    A new pop-up radio station, Upbeat on Air, will be popping up on 6th October. One of the many stars who will feature is Alan Shortt who explains the concept.

    The station will broadcast from the reception area of St Patrick's Mental Health Services based in St Patrick's University Hospital. They will be there for a week from 6th - 10th October to publicise World Mental Health Day.

    They hope to promote positive mental health - 1 in 4 people have suffered from depression. They are looking for Ireland's most popular happy song and will ultimately create a playlist from this.
