Music with Barry Tierney
John's next guest won an international song writing contest at the age of 19 & one of the judges was the late Robin Gibbs of the Bee Gees, who paid the recording of the winning song 'The Rocketboy'. Six years on Barry now releases a new album 'Hotel Alamar' & here he performs one of those songs from the album called 'Rosie Ale of England'.
You can catch Barry Tierney live in Coughlan's Cork tomorrow night & in The Lord Kinsale, Kinsale Saturday night.

The Simplest Prayer is a book that is likely to appeal to those who can feel at sea & unsure of where to turn in times of trouble, according to the Irish Franciscans who have complied what they call a book of love and faith.
