The London Ear on RTÉ 2XM // Show 113 // April 2 2016 //
Ged Graham (Ireland’s Call) and Sharon Sexton (A Fit Wife for a Revolutionary)

Irish people are brilliant! Well, we are and there’s so many talented people living in the UK. I’m delighted to be able to chat to some of them every week on the show.

This week, I chat to Ged Graham, writer and performer of Ireland’s Call, the musical. Ged moved from the Liberties in Dublin to Manchester when he was nine. We hear his story.

I also chat to Sharon Sexton about her one woman play which looks at the 1916 Easter Rising and the life of Kathleen Clarke ‘A Fit Wife For a Revolutionary.
