Culture File "Likes": Niall de Búrca
Traditional storyteller, Niall de Búrca shares a few of his favourites in reading, watching, listening, tasting and smelling.
Fantastic show on Niall DeBurca. Thanks a lot! Would you know where the sound track comes from?
beautiful radio at its best
A truly engaging, at times quirky, always intelligent yet accessible gate to broadening one’s horizon in culture and arts. Must surely be one of the best quality shows on Irish Radio and easily takes the crown in the field of the arts.
For all the reviews…good and bad.
