Reminiscence on the Radio: 1960

1960 was the year that award winning poet Paul Murray got married.  He and his wife Lily went on honeymoon to Barcelona – a trip they never forgot… It was also the year that Cork born actress Brenda McSweeney’s younger brother, Paul, the first son was born.  She remembers being brought to Kinsale in her pyjamas where they were entertained with card tricks and treated to a breakfast of boiled eggs – they only meal ever cooked by her dad.  Heartbreak Hotel by Elvis Presley was the best-selling song around the world in 1960.
