In this second episode of our new Soundings Holy Trinity series, Dylan and Lisa are joined by former Ireland and Lions rugby hall-of-famer Willie Duggan, Oscar nominated Cartoon Saloon co-founder Tomm Moore, traditional music pioneer Andy Irvine and two-time winner of the Choice Music Prize Richie Egan aka JAPE.
Recorded live in the Long Gallery of Kilkenny Castle, we hear about the unique timbre of the cistern in O'Donoghue's pub, what part of his anatomy Andy Irvine was willing to give up to skip a maths test, the more practical considerations of being an Oscar nominee, when not to take Morgan Freeman's advice and why it's a bad idea to hold a cigarette for Willie Duggan before an international rugby game.
