Sponsor: Celtic Invasion of Ireland 2012

Today’s show is brought to you by Celtic Invasion Vacations. Travel with me to Ireland at the end of May 2012 for the vacation of a life time. We're heading up to Donegal, the heartland of the Irish Celtic music that most people adore. It's the home of Clannad, Altan, Moya Brennan, T With Maggies, Donal and Manus Lunny. We'll visit the majestic beauty of Slieve League Cliffs, Glencolumcille, and Glenveagh National park. Then a couple nights in Dublin with a visit to Newgrange and some amazing craic. Sign up to the newsletter at for more details as they become available.
