    The answer to our Rolling Wave quiz is: Eric Bogle. We had a bumper response and the two winners of copies of the Friel Sisters new CD are: Jim Nash of Kilworth in Co. Cork and Gavin Black of Lurgan, Co Armagh. Congratulations to both.

    Our new quiz is for copies of the new CD from The Gloaming, kindly donated by the band. The question: can you name any two members of the Gloaming?
