Skinny & Houli announce that international superstar entertainer Kathleen Keane will be joining them on their tour of Ireland in October. Chicago Irish Sportscaster and the voice of the GAA Eamonn Kelly joins Skinny & Houli to fill us in on a great program for young hurlers from Gaelic Park.

The World Hurling Gathering Championship will take place in Galway Sept. 18-21st and will play host to 25 young people from Chicago as well as hurlers from 7 other nations, compliments of Aer Lingus. Eamonn schools Skinny & Houli on “the most skillful game in the world”, hurling.

Houli’s old pal Denny Kearns shows up at Lizzie McNeill’s for the Wednesday Wiggle and he cracks up the boys while reminiscing of the nuns at Christ the King parish when they were kids. A gorgeous young Irish gal then crashes the show and throws things into an uproar.

Tune in for this hooley with Skinny & Houli!
