Leo Finucane &Knockaderry Heritage festival

Exuse for not updating the blog recently, was caught up in the excitement and anticipation of Fr. Caseys clash with Aherlow in the Munster Football Club Championship. Disappointing result, the day just didn't go well for the lads, but they're a young team with a lot of promise for the future. On to the show and this weeks show will feature..

-Interview with legendary Moyvane filmmaker Leo Finucane, who will be speaking about his new film, Seven Days Trial, which receives its world premiere at St. Johns Theatre, Listowel this Saturday
-Interview with Seán Liston, who will be talking about the forthcoming Knockaderry Heritage Festival
