All the Saints of Ireland on Radio Maria

I am delighted to say that Radio Maria Ireland has invited me to contribute to 'All the Saints of Ireland' - a new programme at 7pm (Irish time) on the second and third Fridays of the month. It is a wonderful opportunity for me to share the work I do here at the blog and to make more people aware of the rich heritage we have in our native saints. Tonight, January 20, I will be speaking on some of the monastic saints whose feasts fall in the month of January as well as on the Irish martyr, Blessed Francis Taylor. I will also be addressing the vexed question of our national patroness, Saint Brigid of Kildare's, alleged relationship to a pagan goddess of the same name. So I do hope you will join me and host Thomas Murphy on Radio Maria for All the Saints of Ireland tonight at 7pm. Details of how to listen to the show can be found at Radio Maria's website:

Am listening now. It is a wonderful program!

It is also likely to be the only guide to the pronunciation of the Irish I'm likely to hear. :-)

Thank you very much. I should warn you though that as a northerner it is Ulster Irish, lol. Glad you are enjoying the show and appreciate you letting me know.
