Coming Up This Sunday...

This Sunday the 22nd we've found the perfect setting for our pre-Christmas show; a beautiful castle in one of Ireland’s historic centres. Miriam will be in the beautifully gothic Jenkinstown House in Kilkenny with one of Ireland’s greatest songwriters; Jimmy McCarthy.

We'll talk to Jimmy about the history of the amazing house in which he lives



You can find out more about the theatre now on Jimmy's website -


Also in this special Christmas show, you'll here some of Ireland's most loved songs performed at a concert in the Thomas Moore Theatre at the House


Here is Jimmy with Mary Black back in 1988 with a beautiful performance of one of Jimmy's most famous songs 'As I Leave Behind Neidin'



And here is Jimmy on The Late Late show in 2011 performing his song; 'No Frontiers'
