Sunday Miscellany

Its new radio essays and occasional poetry followed by complementary music capture our times, passions and curiosities.  The contributor led content is selected from open submission and commissioned writing presented by new voices and established names.

Reportage, appreciations, memory pieces, poetry, travel writing and personal accounts of events and happenings are the stuff of Sunday Miscellany.  The programme is part of Sunday mornings since 1968.  It is essential listening to thousands across Ireland and the world.

Details of the next Sunday Miscellany Live:

Sunday Miscellany Live at Culture Night with RTÉ will feature some familiar Miscellany voices as well as first time guests. The readers on the night will be Paul Howard, poet Jessica Traynor, Cyril Kelly, Deirdre Mulrooney and Conor Mulvagh.  Live music will be performed by the Carolan Trio and others.

The event will begin at 6.30pm on Friday 16th September in The Coach House, Dublin Castle. Please arrive 20 minutes before the event begins as latecomers will not be admitted.

This event is now booked out, however, there may be cancellations on the night.
