    About The Show

    Named after a famous traditional Irish tune, The Rolling Wave is a sharp ear and a close eye on the world of traditional and folk music in Ireland.

    Sunday, 10.00pm on RTÉ Radio 1

    Competition

    Congratulations to Declan Conneely, Moycullen and Geraldine Greene, Ennis - winners of copies of Charlie Piggott and Gerry Harrington’s  CD “The New Road”.

    The answer is: Dé Dannan.

    Thanks for all the entries and the next quiz is for copies of the new CD “Our Dear Dark Mountain with the Sky over it" which we discussed with Seán McErlaine on the Rolling Wave of 26th/27th July last. 

    The question: From what Ulster counties does the music on the “Dear Dark Mountain” CD come? Plenty of clues in the programme with Seán and you can listen back to it all on this page.
