    The Time Out Podcast EP 87 'Na Rossa A Year To Remember' December 16th 2023

    The Time Out Podcast EP 87 'Na Rossa A Year To Remember' December 16th 2023

    2023 will be a year that will live long in the memory of all connected with Na Rossa GAA club in Lettermacaward. Despite all the challenges of lack of numbers available to the club as a whole it hasn't stopped success being achieved on the pitch, like in 2023. Junior A Champions, and promotion sealed back to Division 2. I'm joined in this episode to reflect on a great year for Na Rossa by their manager Declan Bonner, captain Daniel Martin Melly and Felix Melly who was part of the backroom team.  Lots discussed, including the memorable Junior A Championship final win over Moville, the league game which clinched promotion, and the dissapointing nature of the club's controversial exit from the Ulster Club Championship. I hope you enjoy the podcast.

    The Time Out Podcast EP 86 With Guest Danny O'Donnell November 8th 2023

    The Time Out Podcast EP 86 With Guest Danny O'Donnell November 8th 2023

    Danny O'Donnell was born and raised in Islington England but has lived in Donegal since 1991. Both his parents were from Donegal. During my interview with Danny, he talks about his memories of coming to Ireland in his youth and tells how things were back then and how much they've changed. As I myself am a big Manchester United fan for almost 30 years I'm pleased to be including a tribute to the late great Bobby Charlton (RIP) during this interview.  A very important topic discussed at the beginning of the episode is prostate cancer. Danny tells the story of how he was diagnosed with prostate cancer over 7 years ago and how he is now in remission. I'm thankful Danny shared his story and it may help somebody listening. Lots more talked about too, including Movember. I hope you enjoy the interview!

    The Time Out Podcast EP 85 With Guests Sandy Kelly & Brendan Shine August 30th '2023

    The Time Out Podcast EP 85 With Guests Sandy Kelly & Brendan Shine August 30th '2023

    Honoured to be featuring two legends of Irish country music in the one episode. Both Sandy Kelly and Brendan Shine are enjoying long successful careers in music. Although both are closely connected to country music, its not the only genre they've been involved with. Sandy Kelly as she describes in the interview has a love for music generally. In 1982 she was part of pop group The Duskeys when they entered eurovision. Sandy formed the group alongside her late sister Barbara and two cousins. One of her greatest feats which she looks back on with great pride is the fact she recorded a duet with the late legend of country Johnny Cash. Brendan Shine is celebrating 60 years in music having started out in a ceilli band at the age of 16. His long career has seen him enjoy vast chart success in Ireland, while in the UK charts he also faired respectably.  He talks in the interview about the backgrounds behind some of his biggest songs.

    The Time Out Podcast EP 84 Mary From Dungloe Past & Present August 23'rd '2023

    The title of the episode sums it up.  Mary From Dungloe Past & Present. The festival's full title has grown slightly in recent years. Its now 'Mary From Dungloe International Arts Festival'. Since the festival began in 1968 till current day, there is a huge amount of history attached to it. The aim of these 5 interviews is to perhaps share memories or stories with listeners that they might not have known. Guests include the first winner of the Mary From Dungloe in 1968, Celine Powell. Irish Country Music legend Daniel O'Donnell. Spin 'n' Speed Amusements aka McGurks funfair operator Nigel Bell. Irish Country Music singer Eimear Furlong and last but by no means least, former Garda sergeant Joe Joyce Snr. I hope you enjoy the interviews.

    The Time Out Podcast EP 83 With Guest Máire McCole August 12th '2023

    The Time Out Podcast EP 83 With Guest Máire McCole August 12th '2023

    Máire McCole won the Mary From Dungloe in 1983. Becoming the first Mary representing Dungloe to win the title. 40 years have gone by and its a special anniversary since Máire's victory, a win which thrilled locals. I went along to Máire's house for a chat with her on August 1st past, which by chance turned out to be 40 years to the night since her memorable victory.  She reminisced on many of her great memories from this famous Dungloe festival. I learnt a lot during the interview that I didn't know about the history of the Mary From Dungloe, including Máire mentioning in depth the story of how and why the festival got its name in the beginning.  I hope you enjoy the interview.

    The Time Out Podcast EP 82 'Burtonport Community Centre 30 Years Opened' July 26th '2023

    The Time Out Podcast EP 82 'Burtonport Community Centre 30 Years Opened' July 26th '2023

    On the 11th of July 1993 a new community centre opened in Burtonport. Througout the years it has proved a fantastic hub for many different occasions, fundraisers, children's parties, ETB ran classes and so much more.  The building has proved an extremely worthwhile addition. Recently the centre celebrated 30 years opened and I thought I couldn't let the day pass without marking it someway. I interviewed 4 people on the day of the celebrations, and  2 people the following day. Those interviewed were Mary Ellen Hyland, Patricia O'Donnell-Byrne, Margaret Boner, David Alcorn, Margaret Reilly and Mary McGee.  All 6 have varying stories of their input into the centre over the years, without this input the centre would not be what it is today. I hope you enjoy the interviews.
