This year's Dawn Chorus programme took place on Sunday, May 6th 2018, and was a roaring success! All India Radio producer Monika Gulati sent us a pic of herself sporting our Dawn Chorus beanie!!
Well whilst our Dawn Chorus programme may have finished for another year, throughout May, events are still taking place around the country to celebrate the beautiful birdsong that our feathered friends provide. For more information on these events, and on the annual Burren In Bloom festival that takes place from May 18th - 20th, visit our events listings page! And if you have an event you'd like to let our listeners know about, e-mail email@example.com.

Mooney Tunes 8 - Ticket Update
The eighth concert in our hugely successful series of concerts entitled MOONEY TUNES will take place at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre on the evening of Sunday, March 24th.
Tickets went on sale yesterday, and already hundreds of tickets have sold! And they are priced very reasonably, as always, between €14.50 and €39.50. They will be on sale through Ticketmaster, and there will be a booking fee added on.
HOWEVER, if you DON'T want to pay a booking fee, you can go down to the box office at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, and buy your tickets directly from there.
ALSO, if you are going in a group of six or more, you can avoid a booking fee by ringing the group bookings line at the theatre. That number is 01 677-7999.
Alternatively, if you don't live in Dublin, if you can't get to the theatre, do get onto Ticketmaster as soon as possible after the tickets go on sale. The number to dial is 0818 719 377, or click here for more details.
We anticipate a huge demand for these tickets, so we'd advise getting your ticket sooner rather than later. Previous Mooney Tunes concerts have usually sold out within a couple of days. For more information, visit www.bordgaisenergytheatre.ie/mooney-tunes-no-8.
If you feel you have a voice to rival Adele or Justin Bieber, Louis Walsh will be in studio to hear your telephone auditions!
