The show, produced by Neil, can be viewed in its entirety above.

Amid a packed show, wise, stem cell-infused comic Stephen made a welcome return (and getting younger he is), while, proudly purpled Fionnuala, co-organiser with Michael Caul of the inaugural Danielle Carroll Summer School, took us through the itinerary of this weekend’s first ever sessions.

Named after a young homeless mother who died in emergency accommodation and set up in the wake of the MacGill gender balance controversy, the summer school will host two sessions  at the F2 Centre in Fatima, Dublin 8 tomorrow.

Streamed live (details here) , the sessions will include a keynote speech from Gemma O’Doherty and contributions from Kitty Holland, Anne Marie McNally and the ‘sheet’s Olga (yes, her off the telly!).

In other news, Marcel’s non-fiction book club is launched and why Johnny needn’t have gone to Specsavers.

Look, the sun is shining for the weekend so the only thing you should be doing is heading out doors and given the madra a bit of a long walk in the beach. Or maybe you should dust off your tent and take a trip to Westmeath for one of Ireland’s best festivals, the Body & Soul Festival (tickets still available on their website). But if sand in your shoes or portaloos aren’t your thing, there are few other things you can check out on your Tellybox or the local movie fleapit…
