Description

Liam O’Dwyer has enjoyed a very interesting and colourful life, performing in the Gaiety Theatre for some years before joining Radio Eireann, which was then based on the top floor of the GPO in Dublin. He recalls the early Radio Eireann presenters and his own slot on the radio in the late 1950s. The other career in his life was managing the Pike Bar on the Carlow-Kilkenny road. Also in this recording, Liam fondly remembers his father, whose photograph appears here, and his involvement with the Irish Republican Army during the Troubles.
