The Rolling Wave Sunday 17 February 2013

Congratulations and well done to the two winners of our quiz for copies of Christy Moore's album Lily:

Anne Shine of Blackrock, Co Cork and Frank Houlihan of Straffan, Co Kildare.  

The answer was that Christy is from Newbridge in Co. Kildare and plenty had it right.

Our new quiz is for copies of The Blue Room by the Martin Hayes Quartet. We have two to give away and the question is:

When at home in Co. Clare, Martin often plays with a famous céilí band in his home area - can you name the band?

Answers by email, post or Twitter to or The Rolling Wave, Music Programmes, RTÉ Radio One or @TheRollingWave.

Good Luck!
