Joining Pat tonight are newsreaders Ann Doyle and Eileen Dunne, comedian Paddy Courtney, Eamon Morrissey plus Christy Moore.
ANNE DOYLE & EILEEN DUNNE
With over 55 years experience between them reporting the news it's fair to say that they have kept us up to speed on the good the bad, and at times the downright ugly. Anne Doyle and Eileen Dunne joined Pat to talk about their careers, friendship and being recognised by the public.
Mundy is back! Having moonlighted as guest vocalist with the Sharon Shannon band over the past while, Mundy returns with his first studio album in four years. It's called Strawberry Blood and from it he performs the hit single 'Waiting for the Night to Come'
Comedian Paddy Courtney joins Pat to talk about he left his 9-5 job as an accountant to become a comedian and how his mad family are the source for a lot of his material. He also talks about getting into acting and writing and getting 3 IFTA nominations last year.
It was in another recessionary era that Eamon Morrissey became a household name as The Minister for Hardship. He has of course played many other memorable roles over the years including The Brother where he dispenses the wit and wisdom of the never named sibling. After a performance of The Pint of Plain from The Brother, Eamon joined Pat to talk about his work, life and his surprise new role on Fair City.
Ann Mulrooney, curator of the National Craft Gallery joined Pat to showcase the stunning work of six of Ireland's leading crafts people. All of the work featured in the annual craft edition of The Irish Arts Review which celebrates and promote the work of Ireland's finest artists. For further information see www.irishartsreview.com
RACHAEL BERMINGHAM & KIM McCOSER
Rachel and Kim are two mums from Australia who have taken Australia by storm with their cookbook 4 Ingredients and their follow up TV show. They demonstrated to Pat how to cook two dishes with four or less ingredients.
Christy Moore is one of Ireland's most cherished musicians and balladeers. His career has spanned 5 decades and, apart from having an enviable solo career, he has also been a member of such legendary groups as Planxty and Moving Hearts. He joined Pat to sing songs from his new album as well as a couple of auld classics. He also spoke about life on the road in his sixties, about his love of live performances and sporting talents.
