There’s local interest in three entries on the shortlist for this year’s Pan Celtic National Song Contest.
Two songs were submitted by Carlow songwriters while an entry from Donegal is also being sung by a local girl.
Twenty songs will compete in the live final on the 10th of March in the Seven Oaks Hotel in Carlow after being trimmed down from 40 entries from all over the country.
The winner will represent Ireland in the International Festival in Letterkenny in April.
Speaking to KCLR News, Bríde de Róiste of Glór Cheatharlach says there’s something for everyone in it.
