The Midweek Podcast: Pub struggles, a Christmas book and music challenges

Welcome to the second edition of this brand new podcast on LaoisToday.

The Midweek Podcast will be brought to you weekly, bringing you a round up of the week’s news stories and interviews from all across Laois.

On the podcast this week, host Paul Downey speaks to The Finns from Rathdowney about music, Covid-19 and their future plans as well as a live performance of a great Christmas song.

‘Rathdowney’s Own’ is a brand new annual published by some Rathdowney locals and we speak to one of the members behind the book.

Steven Miller speaks to Brendan McDonald from Arles about his new children’s bedtime story, Elephant on the Farm.

And for the first time in 36 years, Michael Dowling from Dowling’s Bar in Mountmellick will not be opening his doors for Christmas.

We hear from Michael and how he has been doing throughout the pandemic.

You can listen to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Soundcloud or below on Spotify.
