An accomplished accordion player and entertainer, it was he more than most who paved the way for Irish artists in America.
From New York, his daughter Sheila joins us to talk about the difficulty of bereavement and saying goodbye to a loved one in a city ravaged by the Corona virus.
We speak to Donal Ring who provided the music at Paddy’s wedding to Galway woman Margaret Joyce and we delve into the archives to hear an interview recorded with Paddy Noonan eleven years ago.
Having done it for all of his working life, Architecture critic with the Financial Times in London Edwin Heathcote, gives some pointers to make working from home a pleasant endeavour and examines the possibility that it may become a permanent arrangement for some in the future.
