For those of us outside of Ireland (which is the vast majority! :mrgreen:), I've just checked, and it's listed as available worldwide through the rte.ie website - so we should all be able to enjoy it!

Sounds great, though.... :D

I believe that Moya,Cormac & the rest of the gang had a lot of fun on stage,completed by very familiar songs. :D

It certainly looked great :D A really brilliant programme anyway, but of course the music was excellent (although I was not impressed that they cut off Tedhir Abhaile Riu before it had really got going!). I particularly liked the fact that the tune in and out of the adverts was played live too :lol:

Yes, but we're now uniquely qualified to finish it off ourselves, G - and I thought we did a passable job! :wink:

Yes, the guy at the end with the harp was particularly good, I thought - What did you say his name was again????!!! :P (Sorry, Cormac!!!! :mrgreen:)

It was a great show what with all those legends, traditions, storytelling, and, last but not least - the music, of course! :P

But I'm with G that cutting off "Teidhir Abhaile Riu" like that as it barely began was something that should not have happened. By the way, I may be wrong but weren't the first notes before "Teidhir Abhaile Riu" the beginning from "Mna na h-Eireann / The Women of Ireland"? It sounded familiar...

I'm used to RTÉ cutting off music ,but it's still annoying.Like Dave said,we have more than enough experience to finish it off ourselves,we had the chance to practice for many years. :D

You are right,I was expecting Moya to sing that song when it suddenly changed to Teidhir Abhaile Riu . :D
