Skinny & Houli welcome Irish filmmakers Dave Farrell and his son Colin right after they touched down in Chicago for the Chicago Premiere of their terrific new film about the 1916 Easter Rising. The film opened to a sold-out audience Friday at the Gene Siskel Film Center and rave review from Rick Kogan in the Tribune.

Then listen to the premiere of our Irish Cousins segment with Skinny’s cousin in Limerick, Paudie Sheahan, as he takes us to O’Connell’s Bar in Ennis for some great trad music from Murty Ryan and a taste of the local craic. Tony Golden then joins the show with tales of his late father-in-law, saloon owner and Irish patriot Buddy Kelly. With some classic Who Cares and Who Died this is a sweet slice of Skinny & Houli!
