The prizes are copies of the new CD Didn’t She Dance and Dance by Paudie O’Connor and Aoife Ní Chaoimh.

    For the new quiz, the singing group Lynched have given two copies of their new CD Cold Old Fire. One of the songs on it is Daffodil Mulligan – her mother was of course Biddy Mulligan and we want to know where was Biddy Mulligan from?
