“Newstalk”‘s Henry McKean’s Truly Brilliant Eurovision 30th Anniversary Feature

Henry McKean, Broadcaster supreme from “Newstalk” visited Millstreet on Friday, 28th April 2023 to prepare a Radio Feature on the 30th Anniversary of the 1993 Eurovision Song Contest in Millstreet.  Having enjoyed a delicious flat white coffee which Henry praised very highly at “Capabu” in The Square, he proceeded to interview a wide variety of people asking them to recall favourite memories of such a prestigious and very famous event.   In the above recording of Henry’s Broadcast which was firstly aired on “Newstalk” on Monday, 8th May, listen out for Catherine Hartigan, Margaret Kelleher (Mountleader), Paudie Healy, Fionnuala SweeneyNoel D. Duggan, Niamh Kavanagh and our recording at Millstreet Museum.   We would be delighted to learn who were the other people who feature in the above recording – two further gentlemen were included in the broadcast.   Well, well done to Henry on such a superb Radio Feature from Millstreet so brilliantly edited and presented.   When Henry left Millstreet he travelled to London for the Coronation and later to Liverpool for the Eurovision to present further excellent reports for “Newstalk”.  Tap on the images to enlarge.
