Morning Focus – Friday 13/07/18

Friday’s show was a special one for Morning Focus as we broadcast live from Miltown Malbay!

The show started with discussion about the much loved Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy. We heard a piece on the Willie Clancy Week Set Dancing Classes and discussed festivities with Cllr Michael Hillery and later Harry Hughes, organizer of the Scoil Samhraidh.

The hour ended with ex-Clare hurler from Newmarket-On-Fergus, Colin Ryan giving his opinions on the upcoming Clare v Wexford hurling game at Pairc Uí Chaoimh, Cork at 3pm tomorrow (Saturday July 14th).
