RnaG broadcasting live from Willie Clancy
As hordes of musicians and music fans make their way to Miltown Malbay for the annual Willie Clancy Summer School, they should keep an eye out for the RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta’s roadcaster, An Ródaí, which will also be making its way to west Clare for the week.

RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta has been supporting the Willie Clancy Summer School since its very first year in 1973, and continues to do so this year.  They will be broadcasting all week from the heart of Miltown, bringing listeners live music, interviews, and a taste of the wonderful atmosphere of this very special week in July.

Their live broadcasts will start with the Éirinn is Alba concert on Sunday 7 July from 8pm – 10pm.  The concert in the Community Centre will celebrate the links between Gaelic Scotland and Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy.  Musicians taking part will include Allan MacDonald, Grúpa John Kelly, Iain and Mary MacGillivray, Seán Mac Craith, Therese McInerney and friends, Aoife Ní Argáin, Kirsten Allstaff, Mick Kinsella and Josephine Marsh, Eimear Coughlan and Francis Cunningham, Eóghann MacEannruig, Niamh Talty, Alanah MacInnes, Charlie Harris, Eamonn and Geraldine Cotter and the West Clare dancers.

From Mon-Friday 2pm – 4pm, Seán Bán Breathnach will be speaking to musicians and visitors in the Ródaí on programme SBB i Sráid na Cathrach.  If the weather allows there will be plenty of live music and dancing outside on the street by the Ródaí too.

RnaG Music Editor, and talented flute, player Neansaí Ní Choisdealbha will be bringing her programme Ceol Binn ó na Beanna to listeners live from Miltown on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 7pm.  Musicians will be playing live in studio in the Ródaí, discussing new albums, and upcoming tours, with Neansaí.
