    Senator David Norris

    Miriam's next guest was at one stage very close to becoming the President of Ireland & then, he wasn't. After a fraught election campaign he went back to his work as a Senator, but he has kept a relatively low profile, Senator David Norris is in studio with Miriam.

    David's autobiography titled 'A Kick against the Pricks' is out in paperback now.

    Mark Graham & G8 Leaders

    Next week, leaders of the Group of Eight will gather in Fermanagh. Although they may not have much spare time built into their itinerary, they could do worse than take a look around the border counties. Mark Graham is the man who spent last year going from one festival to another, the more eclectic the better & he’s been taking a look at the leaders & what activities might suit their individual strengths & personalities. Mark joins Miriam in studio this morning.
