Check out our weekly podcast/online arts show IRISH heArts on Irish Radio International
IRISH heArts takes a weekly look at the arts in Cork, all over Ireland, and of Irish interest, worldwide. With a mix of fledgling artists, and established arts veterans, we look at film, theatre, performance art, visual art, literature, poetry, comedy, circus and a range of other creative and inspirational endeavours. Everything from blogging to dance and anything you could consider in between is up for discussion and exploration in the Irish Radio International arts show. Presenter/Producer Yvonne Coughlan chats to guests about their work, and often invites a musical artist or band to play live in studio and tell us a little about themselves and their music.
Go and 'Like' our facebook page 'Irish heArts on IRI'
or find us on Mixcloud where every previous show is available as a podcast if you miss the original online broadcast time. If you love the arts then this is the show for you, every Thursday at 7pm, IRISH heArts on Irish Radio International.
Irish heArts is born of the 2013 project, The Gathering-RSVP. The Gathering-RSVP is an experimental collaboration of artists in a variety of mediums, located worldwide, answering the question of what it means to be Irish today. This work has provided a live promenade performance in physical theatre, integrating film, music, dance, film and visual arts with community arts participation, in Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland, August Bank Holiday, 2013. 23 radio magazine programmes were also broadcast on IRI, entitled The Gathering-RSVP, to update and document the project every Thursday 8pm-9pm GMT, 2013. For more on this project join the GROUP, or check out number 34 on the PREVIOUS WORK PAGE.
Irish Radio International broadcasts content of interest to ex-patriate Irish men and women (the Irish diaspora) and their families at home, as well as to "New Irish" who have made Ireland their home, and their friends and family in their home countries. IRI hits 62 countries, and, with a potential for interest to millions, that number is rising, as this online station is climbing the ranks of the top 100 online stations, worldwide. "Given that an estimated 80 million people worldwide claim some level of Irish descent, this independent radio station could potentially have a bigger audience than all of the BBC networks combined." Pete Naughton, The Telegraph, Nov. 2015.

FAST is an acronym for Freelance, Acting, Singing, Troupe, and descriptive of their fast performance, which can be billed as a 15 minute interlude in musical theatre, performed walkabout style, in any field near you. The group can play to one person, just as well as to 100, and adults and children alike will enjoy the performance. They offer a 5minute interactive version of dancing in the rain, for festival goers dashing between showers, and are most excellent themselves at enduring Irish festival weather. If they discover an indoor venue in need of ambience they can fill it with the 30 minute version of the show. Whatever your event, it will be enhanced by a FAST visit! Watch this spot for video of their recent debut at Townlands Carnival with 'A forest full of Frolics.'
Joe Lyons, Cathal O'Donovan, Tanya Adamson and Yvonne Coughlan are the FAST team.
