Firstly, I have to say thank you for all your kind words following last week’s show with Dan Mulhall. The interview with The London Ear was literally his last as Irish Ambassador to Great Britain. He left London this week to take up his new post as Irish Ambassador to the United States (Gulp!). I wish him all the best in Washington.

This week, I’m actually back in Ireland to help two very dear friends celebrate their nupitals, so here’s an hour of music for you.
