    Too Much Information - Social Media

    Social media, like Facebook or Twitter or even blogs, make it so easy nowadays to share every little detail of our lives, as young parents are often only too happy to share photos, updates & stories about their new children, but where do you draw the line?

    New York writer Blair Koenig had enough of this over sharing phenomenon & has started blogging about it & she joins Miriam this morning.

    (Blair is also the woman behind a very popular blog STFU, Parents –here in Ireland we can (almost) say it: it translates as Shut The Feck Up)


    Music & chat with Andrew Hozier

    In studio with Miriam this morning is a young singer songwriter from Wicklow, Andrew Hozier. In the last three years the excitement surrounding singer-songwriter Andrew Hozier Byrne has steadily grown. Andrew performs We Are Young & his own song 'Take Me To Church'. Also we have Chirs de Burgh joining us on the line who is a big fan of Andrews.

    All Ireland Quiz - Dublin v Mayo

    The tension is ramping up for the big match on Sunday - Mayo versus Dublin in Croke Park, two counties with great football pedigrees & also two counties with a great musical heritage, but does that talent translate into good football songs? We have clips of some of the songs to play for you this morning & two contestants for our quiz to win a two night accommodation in one of Dublin's Bewley Hotels   & in Lisloughrey Lodge in Cong, Co. Mayo.  

    On the line from Mayo is Sandra Kelly & from Dublin, Danny Keenan.
