The Rolling Wave Sunday 11 May 2014

Congratulations to our two winners of copies of the CD Ushers Island. The correct answer is that Ushers Island is on the River Liffey quays in Dublin City. There were many imaginative answers!

The winners:  
Séamus Byrne, Sandycove, Co.Dublin and David Barnes, Cwmystwyth, Wales.

Our new competition is for two copies of Christy Moore's album Lily and the question - not too taxing, we hope - where is Christy from? 

Answers by email, post or Twitter to therollingwave@rte.ie or The Rolling Wave, Music Programmes, RTÉ Radio One or @TheRollingWave.

Good Luck!
