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.
