And by that I mean me – Jarlath. Over the past few days I’ve found myself defending the rights and wrongs of St Patrick and our celebration around the world. If anything it made me more steadfast in my belief that March 17th and all the surrounding events are more than justified – they’re essential. This tiny island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean has punched way above its weight in every field known to man – both figuratively and literally – for centuries. My friend and colleague Dara O’Briain has been asked to act as the grand marshall of the London parade. I have been given what some say is a far more important role (nobody is saying this) of MC for the Trafalgar Square celebration. This is what it looks like. I’m very excited to get to do this with some of my favorite Irish musical acts. You should come to it.
We’ve had some unbelievable guests on the podcast in the last few weeks. Why not download a couple or get the free iPhone or Android app to access the entire back catalogue?
In the coming weeks we are starting a new series of episodes with the help of faiseasontickets.ie. Starting with the captain himself Seamus Coleman, we will have 5 interviews with the stars of the Irish squad. Subscribe now to get them first.
Happy St patrick’s Day guys. Hopefully see you at a gig very soon.
