In studio with John this morning is Jurgen Barkhoff, Professor of German at Trinity College Dublin & Dir of the Trinity Long Room Hub (Arts and Humanities Research Institute). Jurgen came to Ireland in early 1980's & ended up settling in Ireland. First on the line to John we have Rebecca Mattes from Stuttgart, who is spending time in Ireland.
Talented traveller sisters Mary & Kathleen Keenan are Clare & they joins us from our Limerick studio for a chat & performance. Mary won her first singing competition aged just 7-years-old. They have since shared the stage with some great acts including The Hothouse Flowers, Finbar Furey & Glen Hansard.
You may remember that some weeks ago we spoke to married couple Vivienne & Derek Murphy, along with author Sheila O'Flanagan, all of whom talked openly about their decisions not to have children. It got a great response from around the country, including my next guest Joan O'Mahony who joins us now from Radio Kerry.
