Singer-songwriter Ultan Conlon talks to Anne McLoughlin on the Good Morning Show

Ultan Conlon and the Night Owls

Ultan Conlon hails from East Galway, and music is in his blood.

Last Friday, Anne McLoughlin caught up with him on the phone, ahead of a big gig at Whelan’s in Dublin.

He talked about where good songs come from, about the difference between house concerts and venue gigs, and about the challenges of making it as a professional musician these days (clue: teaching music helps).

His current album is ‘The Last Days of the Night Owl’.

He’s playing Westport House on 18th May, and may also be playing in Claremorris over the summer. Watch this space!

For more interviews, news, music and chat, join the Good Morning Show every weekday morning 9-11 a.m., live on 94.6 FM.

Cultural Social Event 12th May – Organisers Speak to Paul and Lara on the Good Morning Show

There are now 198 different nationalities in Ireland. How many do you think we have in Claremorris?

Claremorris Family Resource Centre is holding a Cultural Social Event on 12th May, from 2.30 to 4.30 pm – a great opportunity to meet people from other countries now living in Claremorris, and to share some food with each other.

Wherever you’re from, why not come along?

Nuala Gilligan from the FRC brought in event co-organisers Fatima and Zain, both from Syria, to the Good Morning Show. Zain works at the Family Resource Centre, and Fatima is a student at Mount St Michael Secondary School.

They talked about the event, about life in Ireland, and about food, and also shared some beautiful language with presenters Paul and Lara. Nuala also talked about the other programmes that run at the FRC.
