Dateline Irish on Echoes of Erin
with Diane Byrnes

Hello Friends,


Attached is Dateline Irish for Sunday, September 24th.  The Ireland Report comes to us from Belfast with Mairtin O'Muilleoir, Publisher of the Irish Echo in New York. Mairtin has been with Echoes of Erin for 22 years and I think he does a great job.  I think the Echo is a fantastic newspaper, they also have a digital version, we receive so much good news here.  Thank you Mairtin O'Muilleoir. The sponsor for this segment is Ancient Order of Hibernians Allegheny County Board with Bob Kelly as president.


I am working on the topic for 'The Top of the Hour Moment' which is sponsored by the Gaelic Arts Society of Pittsburgh with Shirley Murphy as president. Actually the topic will be on the various Awards the Irish Echo awards to so many people.  Even if  you do not subscribe you can still nominate a candidate for one of the special awards.


Today is the Pittsburgh Ceili Club's Picnic at the Rose Barn in North Park from 2pm to 7pm.  It sounds like a lot of fun with music, dance, good food and camaraderie.


Next week we begin October and with new sponsors.  If you are thinking of becoming a sponsor - availabilities are Dateline Irish for October, November & December.  You can email me your message, do let me know if you are interested and I will send you the details.


Enjoy the program on Sunday, I like to think I have a good variety of music for your listening pleasure, and there is nothing quite like having a 'live news segment'.


Now if you are unable to listen on Sunday, the program will be re-broadcast on Wednesday, on line on from 1:30pm.  Once you are on the KDW site then click on Listen Live and that should bring you up to the program.


Have an enjoyable weekend.
