    The Rolling Wave

    Our programme comes from Miltown Malbay in Co. Clare at the start of the 42nd Willie Clancy Summer School with music, song and a look forward to the week's events.

    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

    A new competition to speed us through the winter on The Rolling Wave: We have 2 copies of the new CD by Tony Mac Mahon and Steve Cooney – “Live in Spiddal – Scaoil Amach an Pocaide” given to us by Raelach Records.

    The question: From what county in Ireland does Tony Mac Mahon come?
