The Rolling Wave Sunday 11 January 2015

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!

The Rolling Wave

200 years ago Napoleon met his Waterloo in 1815 - which ended his rule as Emperor of the French and marked the end of all his life's ambitions. The connection between France and traditional Irish music and song will be remembered in tonight's programme.

About The Show
