I grew up in a house that was filled with talk of politics- Brendan Howlin tells @MiriamOCal of life growing up in Wexford.— The Labour Party (@labour) May 29, 2016
Brendan spoke to Miriam about the buzz that the Wexford Opera and Light Opera Festivals bring to Wexford and while the current Government has neglected the Arts community - Labour in opposition will be vocal on the side of the art's community.
As Miriam O'Callaghan's guest on the show - Deputy Howlin was able to pick the musical soundtrack of the show - picking Au Font du Temple Saint from Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers in honour of the Wexford Opera Festival, Blackbird by The Beatles as the soundtrack of his youth and the West is Awake by Lumiere in honour of the Connacht Rugby Team winning the Guinness Pro 12.
If you enjoyed Brendan's song choices as much as we did - you can listen to them below on Spotify.
