McCann’s Irish Oatmeal presents The Houli’s Hooley. As you may or may not know The Houli’s Hooley is part of the Hibernian Transmedia Network. This week due to Independence Day we decided to make Irish American Radio History by combining and taping all three Hibernian Transmedia radio programs in ONE HOUR at the Irish American Heritage Center. We were honored to have as our very special guests musicians Eimear Arkins and Eileen Gannon. Hibernian Transmedia broadcasts three shows weekly including the “The Skinny and Houli Show”, “The Craic” with Geno Cooney and Mike Houlihan and lastly The Houli’s Hooley. While this episode is a bit unorthodox from what our loyal listeners may be familiar with, please give it a listen as it’s just as fun as the normal shenanigans. Enjoy!
