Past year highlights from Johnny Atkinson, Mary Morrison & Eamon McGarry with Liam Logan.

  • Series 13 Programme 10

    Liam presents the first of two special round-ups of the best programmes of the past year - starting at the Burns Night in the Great Hall at Queens, where we hear Kevin and Ellen Mitchell singing along with Mairi McInnes.

    In November, Liam had a yarn with Johnny Atkinson of Lislagan; while in February, he was in Carrickfergus finding out more about the 400th anniversary of Hamilton and Montgomery from Mark Thompson. In May, the Valhalla Street Theatre staged a drama about the Hamilton Montgomery story - ’18 Miles to Freedom’ and Liam caught up with some of the performers. The Ayrshire lairds were also celebrated at a Festival in Donaghadee where Liam met the author of the play and some of the guests at the event including Willie Cromie and Willie Drennan.

    In November, Liam caught up with Linkumdoddie in Dumfries; while in March, a 3rd edition of James Fenton’s ‘The Hamely Tongue’ was published and reviewed by Dr John Kirk - and Jim himself went with Liam to visit Mary Morrison in Lisnagunogue. At Balnamore Primary School in June, Jim was VIP at the unveiling of a new extension to the school. For the last item on today’s programme, we re-visit a trip to Lissanoure to meet Eamon McGarry.
