    Tonight we highlight Irish entries for the Prix Svetozar Stracina – a prestigious radio competition for folk music recordings run by Slovak Radio and the EBU. Also, recordings by Clannad and Iarla Ó Lionáird of an O’Carolan song and tune – Eleanor Plunkett – and some other interesting recordings including “The Magpie” by the Unthanks, reels played on the harmonica by Noel Battle and Colonel Fraser on the pipes by Lottie Cullen.
