We are delighted to have this opportunity to bring you our Christmas Showcase.  This podcast is especially for an Irish Christmas featuring some poetry, prose and music for the festive season.  Alice Taylor recounts Christmas as a child on The Cork/Kerry border as featured in her book ‘The Night Before Christmas’ and we have one or two memories of Christmas in Ireland from two ladies who work at The Coleman Irish Music Centre in Gurteen County Sligo.  Noel Monahan reads from his poem ‘ Diary of A Town’ and we have music from Ursula Connolly and Johnny Duhan especially for yuletide.  We do hope you enjoy this podcast and would like to thank you for your support so far in a year which will see us reach almost 150,000 visitors.  We also want to wish everyone of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
