Mansion House State Dinner

Peter Donegan and Brian Greene take to the studio together (we know, we know it was a blue moon), to introduce Uachtarán na hEireann, Michael D Higgins’ address at the 56th International Garden Centre Congress in Ireland, which took place last week.  We have to thank Bord Bia for being deadly and assisting us in providing you with the scoop on his fantastic speech. The Irish President talks about gardening and horticulture in Ireland, and also about his interest in the topic.

The Sodshow airs every Friday and is available in iTunes and all good podcast stores around 3.30pm the same day. Thoughts or comments ? @sodshow on twitter or on facebook as The Sodshow.

And with over 200 delegates from 22 countries the 56th congress – an independent not for profit organization committed to the continuous improvement of the garden centre industry worldwide, if you must ask – meeting takes place in Ireland this week;  and with the help of the team at Bord Bia, The Sodshow should have some interviews and what not over the next few weeks and days to give you a taster of some of the voices who have travelled across for the weeks events.

I am due to meet with the congress again on Thursday August 14th, again as Bord Bia’s guest -  cheers lads.
