    Sunday with Miriam

    Miriam O'Callaghan presents a live stimulating mix of lifestyle, music, human interest and great interviews, the perfect soundtrack to your Sunday morning.

    Poet, Micheal O'Siadhail

    Micheal O'Siadhail is one of Ireland's finest poets. His most ardent fans included the late Brian Friel, who died on Friday this week.  Micheal has won a slew of international prizes, but his latest collection of poems is perhaps his most personal and affecting yet.  

    It chronicles the last two years of his wife Brid’s life.  Brid was Micheal’s partner – and his muse - for 40 years.  But for the last twenty years of that, she suffered from Parkinson’s disease – and she died in 2013. 

    Micheal O'Siadhail's new collection of poems, The Crimson Thread, is published by Bloodaxe Books.


    Musician, Judy Collins

    Judy Collins has had an extraordinary career in music in her own right, as well as performing and popularising the songs of Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell before either had been discovered as performers. Judy's new album is Strangers Again and she's touring Ireland this week as follows:

    • Wednesday 7th October - Town Hall Theatre  Galway
    • Friday 9th October - The Waterfront  Belfast
    • Saturday 10th October - Pavilion Theatre  Dun Laoghaire
