The Midweek Podcast: Local Senator on Gambling Bill, Virtual dancing for St Patrick’s Day and music from Portlaoise native Chris Conroy

On the week’s LaoisToday Midweek Podcast, we hear from local Labour Party Senator Mark Wall about his party’s bill to end the link between entertainment and betting.

Senator Wall joined us on the podcast to speak about the draft bill, how it came about and the ads that are currently out there at the moment promoting betting.

Elsewhere, Maureen Culleton has been involved in Irish dancing for many years. This year, Maureen will be dancing virtually for St Patrick’s Day with people from all over the world.

Over the last few weeks, Maureen has been teaching people over Zoom the St.Patrick’s Day dance.

Maureen speaks to us about her love for Irish dancing, her home in Ballyfin and the people worldwide that are dancing with her.

Continuing with our local artist feature: this week we are joined on the podcast by Portlaoise native Chris Conroy.

Chris joins us to discuss his recent releases, his future work and who inspires him in the music industry.
