                                Bord Bia GroMor Gardening Competition 

We are teaming up with Bord Bia for our summer long Gromor Competition on the Ray D'Arcy Show.

As well as getting advice and tips on gromor.ie our gardening guru Gerry Daly will join Ray in studio every Tuesday afternoon to help get your gardens growing.

We have €5000 worth of prizes to give away on the 25th of August and all we are asking you to do is send in pictures or a video of how your outdoor space or garden has improved and grown during the Lockdown.

Between now and August 21st, track your progress of how you are doing with your outdoor space or garden by taking photos or videos and send them into Garden@RTE.ie

Gerry Daly will be casting his eye over the entries and the winners will be announced on the show on the 25th of August.

Your entries will be judged in five different categories.

They are:

BEST USE OF SPACE

This could be anything from a windowsill or a balcony to a flowerbox at the end of your cul de sac. Those of you out there who live in a more urban setting may have decided to make the most of your little patch and we would love to see how you've added new life to the space.

                 .................................................................................................................................

MOST COLOURFUL

It’s never too late to add a burst of colour to the garden! Do you have the most vibrant flower display in the country? Even painted furniture could brighten up the dullest of spots. This is a real chance to get as creative and colourful as you can!

                      ............................................................................................................................

LOCKDOWN GARDEN

Have you changed the way you use your outdoor space since we were all asked to stay at home? Perhaps you finally got to do that project you have always been meaning to do. Maybe the kids transformed the back into an obstacle course, or you created a little haven that you can call your own.

                   ..............................................................................................................................

VEGGIE PATCH

There is nothing like the taste of fresh veggies plucked straight from your own soil, and now is the perfect time to start digging and planting. Gromor.ie has guides and tips for all you first time veggie growers out there. This is also a perfect project for Little Growers to get involved with.

                    ..........................................................................................................................

GARDEN PORTRAIT

Anything goes in this category! Did you manage to capture the perfect cartwheel being performed on the grass? Maybe a family of foxes paid a visit when you had the camera at the ready, or you snapped a picture of a beloved family member paying you an outdoor visit.

Live Music - Cathy Davey

Musician Cathy Davey is back with a brand new album New Forest and she popped into studio to chat to Ray and perform some of her new tracks 

Actor Mara Wilson

Actor Mara Wilson

The name Mara Wilson mightn’t immediately leap out at you but once glance at the photo on the cover of her memoir and you know her straight away.  There she is aged 8.  Matilda.  The title character in the brilliant Danny DeVito Roald Dahl adaptation from 1993.   For her the memories are both happy and bittersweet.

She also starred in Mrs Doubtfire and the remake of Miracle on 34th Street among other films.  It’s been a long journey to where she is now.  Which is appropriate as her book is called Where Am I Now? and she chats to Ray this afternoon

 

Emailbag

Flabyrinth - Jules Coll

Flabyrinth - Jules Coll

Last January Jules Coll contacted the radio show looking for ‘Dunnes Dave’ – a guy she met in the carpark of Cornelscourt shopping centre on New Year’s Eve (2015).

She then went on to Ray's TV show too, to chat about it, and after a nationwide search, she finally has closure...

You’ll know her as DJ Deirdre from the hit TV show, Damo and Ivor, which she also wrote and produced.

She’s also a fully fledged author. Her new book, Flabyrinth, is on shelves now and she chats to Ray this afternoon
