It was all about how wonderful a life it is when Carmel Harrington joined Brenda Drumm for a natter on Artyfacts about her new novel 'Every Time A Bell Rings' which is based on themes from the classic 'It's A Wonderful Life'. This is Carmel's third novel and she was happy to bring Brenda up to date with all that's been happening and to tell her all about the new book.

On Wednesday 1 July 2015 Artyfacts had the very great pleasure of debuting a play by Margaret Rowe called 'Adam and Barney - A Radio Rhyme'.
Adam and Barney offers us an opportunity to eavesdrop on two typical Irish men having a drink in their local bar.
Margaret Rowe is a writer and actress from Newbridge in Co Kildare. This is her first play. She has written this play entirely in rhyme which is really quite an achievement as it's not that easy to end up with shoe and canoe in the same sentence.
