    Mornings with Dave Fanning Search for Ireland’s Most Musical Family

    Brothers, sisters, cousins, in-laws, step fathers, grannies – the show is looking for families that play together to enter the competition. Non family members are permitted – as long as family is at the heart of it – as with The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem and The Fureys and Davey Arthur.

    Send us a 4’00 maximum clip performing the song or music of your choice – it does not need to be an original piece of music.

    Upload it to Youtube and email us the link to davefanning@rte.ie.

    You also need to send us a 100 word supporting paragraph telling us your story and why you should be chosen.

    The closing date for entries is 5pm on Wednesday  26th August.

    Our final will be held the first week in September and finalists need to be available then to perform before our judges.

    The judges’ decision is final.

    The prize courtesy of Waltons music is a Kurzweil CUP-2 Upright Digital Piano. For more information visit  www.waltons.ie

    The Underdog Team - St Joes in Kilteevan

    Earlier in the summer we went to Ballybofey, Donegal to interview All-Ireland winning coach Jim McGuinness. On that day we played our report on our struggling Underdog squad of St. Joes GAA, Kilteevan, Roscommon.  Jim was so taken with their story, he said he would try & make it down to Kilteevan for a training session & a pep talk with the lads!  Our own John Bella Reilly brings us this report.
