"dublin" Discussed on Travel with Rick Steves
"Street and he's a typical James Joyce pause. He has his walking stick out, and he's known as the dick would stick. I'm Rick Steves, this is travel with Rick Steves, we're talking with Joe Darcy, we're walking through Dublin, our phone numbers 877-333-7425 and Charles calling in from peachtree city in Georgia. Cheryl, thanks for your call. Hello. Hi. So I'm going to be visiting Dublin on a cruise. And I'm going to have a limited amount of time. We're just going to be there for about 12 hours. So I was wondering if you could tell me some of the things that I should I can't miss during that time and maybe something that's off the beaten path. Well, one of the things hi, it's Joe here. What are the things that you shouldn't miss is the book of kells, which is not the oldest manuscript book made in the island, but the most important, it's famous for the calligraphy and the incredible artwork that's in it. That's on permanent display in Trinity College, right in the heart of Dublin. My advice would be if you're on a cruise ship, there's probably going to be lots of bosses visiting Trinity College. They normally visit in the morning hours. So don't go there in the morning, if you go in there on your own. Arguably the most beautiful medieval art from the dark ages in Europe, the illuminated manuscripts and the book of kels. Absolutely. A reminder that Ireland was a real bright spot in Europe when the rest of Europe was in what we call the dark ages. So as well as Trinity College, I would say that's in late afternoon, but before that, perhaps go up, take a walk up to Dublin castle, the grounds of Dublin castle. A lot of people get disappointed when they see Dublin castle because they're expecting the medieval castle, but Dublin castle was destroyed by an accidental fire towards the end of the 17th century and it's a French style building now, but it's a magnificent building. But the center of government, really. It was the center of government of the British colony of Ireland. Now one thing I'd recommend Cheryl is to just take advantage of all the wonderful guides in Dublin. I mean, Joe is one of them, but there's lots of good guides that give walking historic walking tours. They take an hour and a half or so, and students do it at Trinity College, and then guides meet you at different meeting points around Dublin, and they'll give you a good two hour historical walk. Absolutely. Have fun. Your trip. Thank you very much. You bet. And Steven's calling in from kataha in Wisconsin, Steven, thanks for your call. Hi, Rick. In 2013, my wife and I were in Dublin, and we happened to be there for bloomsday. June 16th. And we took a couple of guided James Joyce walks. We went to Davy Byrne's pub for lunch. We had the traditional gorgonzola cheese sandwich and a glass of burgundy. And for anybody who has any interest in Dublin or Irish literature, I this should be a pilgrimage. Joe just gave you a thumbs up that doesn't show very well on the radio, but he's all for what you just said. If you or have a good gorgonzola cheese sandwich in Davey Barnes on bloomsday 2013, I might have been there at the same time. I was, I was the guy dressed in, well, there was thousands of people dressed, but I had a lovely bowler hat on. I have my bloomsday outfit. And I sincerely hope if you did Davy bournes on your pilgrimage that you went to a place called Sweeney's. Swan is pharmacy is on Lincoln place in Dublin, and that's one of my favorite places in Dublin. And if you're looking for something different to do in Dublin wizards when he's pharmacy, not just on bloomsday. Now what's so good about this pharmacy? Swansea pharmacy was a pharmacy built in 18 45, 1850. So it's a Victorian pharmacy and the pharmacy has been preserved one of my colleagues in I say one of my colleagues in 2016. I'm a director of FW 20 complement, which is a charity which looks after the shop. It's a preserved Victorian pharmacy, but what makes it on the joys trail is in chapter 5 of James Joyce's Ulysses, classic book about Dublin under 16 to July 1904. Leopold bloom around ten 30 in the morning goes into sweaty pharmacy. And why he's in pharmacies looking around, he's describing the bottles and the jars under shelves. Probably still there today. It's just an incredibly preserved building. And why he's there Leopold bloom boy is a part of lemon soap. So every visitor who visit us on blooms, they particularly, they buy the bar of soap. It's not just on bloomsday, it's when these pharmacy is open every day. It's a little gem and it only holds about 20 people if they're all seated in there. But we said people in there and we read James Joyce elder loud. On every day between 1 o'clock and 2 o'clock, there's a story read or a part of a book. But if you go in there with a group of people outside those hours, they read a story for you anyway. So now for those of us who are not that literate to have read Ulysses, what is bloomsday? Bloomsday is the 16th of June, James Joyce's most famous novel is Ulysses, which is about one day in Dublin, and the day he chose was the 16th of June, 1904, which is the day that he went out with a girl named Nora barnacle for the first time. That was their first date. They eventually eloped a few months later, so the city celebrates James Joyce in his literary heritage every June 16th. Every June 16th is now known as bloomsday and we dress up in the clause of the period and we follow the roots of both Leopold bloom and a guy named Steven daedalus as they're walking backwards and forwards across Dublin on the 16th of June 1800 and Stephen, would you recommend being in Dublin on bloomsday? I would in my wife and I are going to be there again this year for bloomsday and we hope we can meet Joe. And what do you look forward to doing other than meeting Joe on bloomsday? There's all kinds of festivities. There's concerts. There's walks, there's just hanging out in the pub. The whole city is alive. Joe, what are a couple of other favorite hidden treats in Dublin that we might want to be aware of. The marsh library is Ireland's oldest public library. It's a 300 year old right beside Saint Patrick's cathedral. So if you're a tourist and the likelihood is you're going to go along to Saint Patrick's cathedral at some stage. And just a little bit further on, I'm talking 50 60 yards is a marsh library, and the library has been preserved as it was built 300 years ago. So a 300 year old library. Those are wonderful. All over your pointing to find them. And what's one more? Just a little bit outside Dublin, city center is a place called the casino in merino. It is an incredibly unique work of Georgian architecture from the late 18th century. It is a magnificent building. On the outside, it looks like a grecian temple with huge windows, a massive front door, and it looks for all the war, like it's going to be one room, one big hall inside. And this would have been back from the days when Ireland was not chafing at British rule, but at least Dublin was embracing it and benefiting from it. Dublin was embracing it. There was a man named James caulfield, who was inherited a large fortune. He went off on the grand tour of Europe when he was 20 years of age, and he came back with wonderful ideas of bringing classic architecture and classic art to dominant and he built the casino and Marino. Stephen, thanks for your call. Thanks, Rick. You bet. Tour guide Joe Darcy is taking us for a bloomsday Centennial walk around doublet on travel with Rick Steves. It's a pre-pandemic interview from before Joel retired from the board of Sweeney's pharmacy. That's one of the must see literary stops along the route taken by Leopold bloom on June 16th in James Joyce's classic novel Ulysses. We have contact information for Joe in this week's show notes at Rick Steves dot com slash radial. And Joe, let's just finish with temple bar because that's just sort of the trendy tacky touristy full of hen parties and stag parties, beer drinking zone, but you can't miss it when you're in Dublin, how can we approach and enjoy temple bar. But you should walk through template bar during the day because the cobble streets that you're walking on are 17th century streets get that you're walking on. Yes, it is a little bit tacky. It's a bit of a tourist trap, but it's extremely colorful. And there's also the music pub walk and the literary pub crawl. And they're wonderful experiences because you can go from pub to pub learning about the music or the literature, depending on your taste. And temple bar in Dublin was a thriving area in the 18th century, and it was full of, as well as taverns and bars. It was full of theaters, including one called a smock Ali theater, which has been restored now, and that was the first theater to be built in the British Isles after the restoration of the monarchy in Britain in the mid 17th century. So much history. Now when people go to Ireland, they always,.

"That's the day the streets have Dublin become the haunt of James Joyce fans, as they painstakingly recreate the details of that day, lived by his character Leopold bloom in Ulysses. Joe Darcy specializes in walking tours of his hometown, and he joins us now for insider tips for seeing the best of Dublin. Joe, thanks for being here. Thank you for having me. So Dublin was, at one time, the number two city in the British Empire. It certainly was particularly in the 18th century in the 1700s. It really was a 1700s. Was that period of architecture known as George and architecture and Dublin went through a big, big building boom in the 18th century and Dublin's prosperous Protestant class, they had a huge amount of money, and they built a huge amount of buildings. So when we see the great Georgian architecture, Georgian is British for neoclassical. When you go to Dublin, that was mostly Protestant, big wigs in Dublin representing the British throne. Yes. The elite because the official of the colony. The official religion in Ireland was Protestantism, although the vast majority of people were Catholic. We have this phrase called beyond the pale, beyond the paleo, it relates to Dublin when the Anglo Normans, the precursors to the English when they arrived and captured the city of Dublin in 1167, 1169, a bigger part. And Dublin became the center of the English colony of Ireland. In a very short period, they built castles in and around Dublin up to 30 miles north 30 miles, 40 miles south and ten, 12 miles to the west, and that became known as the pale. Could be on the pail. And beyond the pale was outside the English control. So good luck to you if you venture beyond the bale. Absolutely. Okay, let's go back with our walkthrough Dublin now. And to me, the center of Dublin would be O'Connell bridge. And you stand on O'Connell bridge and what are we going to see? You're the guide, tell us about the river, tell us about what we're looking at. We're standing on O'Connell bridge, you're standing on the river liffey, which is flowing underneath you. Rip it if he flows in an east west direction, almost perfectly east west for the city of Dublin. So it divides Dublin beautifully off into north side and south side. The north side of Dublin in the early Georgian period was the place where the aristocracy built their houses. And then in around the middle of the 18th century a man named James Fitzgerald built his house now Carl leinster house on the south side of the city and from the time he built his house there. All the rich people started to build their houses on the south side. And the north side kind of got the zero to from the rich people and started to be populated by poorer people. There's a working class edge to it. Yeah, yeah. Pretty much so. And then in years gone by when Dublin's population was centered in the city, Dublin's population had now spread out into suburbs, but in years gone by there was a big population level in Dublin city center. And you were defined by which side of the river you were born on. What is the joke that the north siders were called the accused? The accused on the south side is where your honor. Your honor, is that much of a gap? It's not so much now, but when I was growing up, it's pretty rough and tumble district. Yeah, north side is where considered rough less or more criminally inclined. A favorite joke was years ago was why would a south side girl that's just the well off girl? Why would she go out with a north side a boy to get her handbag back? I want my handbag back. Just beyond the next bridge then down from O'Connell bridge is a wonderful memorial of 6 or 7 figures. They are very tall figures, very tall, skinny figures. And I think what the sculpture has made them tall is to accentuate how thin they were. Ardent has had a long and troubled history, but without a doubt the greatest disaster to happen to Ireland was the famine of 1846, 1847, isn't the population of Ireland today, even less than it was before the great potato famine. I would still much less than it was a third of the population or something. There's a sense of art in 1841 on the population of Ireland was 8 million people the population of Ireland in the 1901 census, which is the next one we have records for because a lot of red cards were destroyed. It was less than 4 million people. So half population halved in a short period. There's no other European country. No other western country, I think, has a population demographic like that where population is less than it was a 150 years ago. And that's part of the impact Ireland has had in the United States. There are more Irish people in the United States today than in Ireland. That's very true. Yeah. This is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with Joe Darcy and he's a tour guide in Dublin and we're taking a walk through Dublin, and Joe, if we want to walk from O'Connell bridge up O'Connell street, we see a lot of statues that just really tell the story of Irish history who are some of the characters we'll meet along that O'Connell street. On the first statue you'll see, it's right beside O'Connell bridge is the statue of Daniel O'Connell. He's one of my great heroes of Ireland. Most of the heroes of Ireland are soldiers who have died fighting for Ireland, but Daniel O'Connell is one of my greatest because he lived for Ireland. He was a politician in the early 19th century who, through peaceful means and through organizing the Catholics of Ireland into a major sort of block. They didn't have any votes in Ireland, Catholics did not have to vote. But he organized a series of mass monster meetings. So monster meetings, tens of thousands of people. This was before they had amplified voice speakers. Yeah, this was very much like the velvet revolution that went on in Eastern European countries that followed Soviet Union. He Daniel O'Connell was doing this in the 1820s. It also come upon the general post office and this is to a lot of people going well. It's the post office, but this is near and dear to the Irish soul. The genital post office is one of the most iconic buildings, not just in Dublin, but an island. Ireland has been a colony of England for a long, long time. 700 years, there's been many, many rebellions right throughout that time. And the most iconic of other bidens was to provide enough 1960 in which took place mostly in Dublin. On the morning of Easter Monday in 1960 in a small group of Irish rebels captured the GPO, the general post office and declared an Irish independent republic. The rebellion was doomed to failure in terms of military because they didn't have any numbers. They were easily going to get beaten, but what their intention was and what they succeeded in doing was to reinvigorate the demand by Irish people for their own nationhood again. They had almost no chance of winning, but oh, they had stoked the spirit. It's not just almost no chance they had zero. So this is worse than the Alamo in America, probably. Actually, very much like the Alamo. We could relate to the Alamo. Yeah, they had no hope of victory. Now, nearby, there used to be a statue of the great British hero, lord Nelson, lord Nelson's column, Nelson's pillar that was called, I think it was built around 1820 or something like that. You could walk up Nelson's pillar in an internal stairway. I remember doing it as a child for three pence, which was a lot of money. I could buy a lot of toffees for three pence. But I did it once. And in 1966 on the 50th anniversary of the 1960s by then. So that's 50 years after 50 years. The general post office. The artist Republican army put a bomb in the middle of Nelson's pillar and knocked down from about halfway down, yeah. Blew it up, blew it up, yeah. What stands there today? It was replaced by a statue of the river goddess. The goddess of the river lift your name is an Olivia. I loved an Olivia statue. She was a reclining figure. She must have been about 18, 20 foot long, surrounded by a fountain of water and most Dublin people loved her there. Quite often, people would put soap washing up liquid into the fountain and chief peace surrounded by sods, and she was no one affectionately as the floozy in the jacuzzi. When the year 2000 was coming around, a lot of European cities, I don't know that American cities, a lot of your princes were building projects to commemorate the new millennium. So there was a lot of designs put in for a new monument on the side of the former Nelson pillar. The winning project was a 110 meter high metal spark. It's called the monument of light. And this is just like a stainless steel stainless steel spike. Most people know it as the spike. It's just like a big flagpole without a flag on it. That's it, yeah. Any other nicknames? It's the spire, it's the needle, the stiletto in the ghetto. Just another one that gather is its most popular nickname, yeah. Just across the road from the Stila when the ghetto is a statue of James Joyce on the street called north Earl.
Charlie Is Live on the Campaign Trail for J.D. Vance
"Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. This is producer Andrew colvert filling in for the one and only Charlie Kirk. But I have a great surprise for you. Even though he can't make the entire show today, we do have him on the line. He is criss-crossing the state of Ohio right now with JD Vance. So without further ado, we've got a lot of show to cover, but I wanted to bring Charlie Kirk himself in right here at the top of the hour. Charlie, welcome to your own show. I'm honored to be a guest on my own show. And thank you, Andrew. And I wanted to call in just for a couple of minutes here. I'm actually on the road. We're about to be in Dublin, Ohio. I'm here with JD Vance and senator Josh hawley. It's the last sprint before. What is actually turning out to be one of the most expensive primary races in our country's history, JD is the FrontRunner here. He's got president Trump's endorsement. And it's been really interesting, you know, barnstorming the state kind of learning where the Republican Party is. And this really is kind of a test for what kind of Republican Party do we want? Do we want to kind of the same old kind of Bush and Cheney Republican Party or do we want to go in a direction of a party that will defend our manufacturing and put tariffs on China and restrict immigration and the people of Ohio are resonating with that message. And so, you know, it's been a long slog. It's been a pretty contested primary, but JD is really pulling away and just for all of our Ohio listeners here. I'm completely and totally enthusiastic. Enthusiastically behind JD and we need people to show up in big numbers

"Hello, everyone. This is Danny. I just have a very super short announcement for you. On May 28th, we are going to be hosting the sigma nutrition conference in Dublin Ireland, we're incredibly excited about it. And about getting to hang out with people in person again. So the conference is based on the theme of understanding nutrition science confidently. So specifically the aim is for you to become clearer on what we know about diet and health, but also to become really confident in your base understand how we know that and then be able to articulate that to people when you are asked questions or discussing these different topics. So on the day, Alan neve and I will be giving lectures and holding Q&A sessions. But I also have the huge honor to say that the esteemed Harvard nutrition epidemiologist doctor deirdre Tobias will be the special keynote session on the day. Doctor debias, in addition to her research, that she carries out and in addition to teaching at Harvard in nutritional epidemiology, she's also the academic editor for the American journal of clinical nutrition. And if you listen to our episode on this podcast, you will know that she is just absolutely superstar in the field of nutrition research. And this is the first ever time doctor Tobias has presented in Ireland or the UK. So this is a very special and unique opportunity to be in the audience and listen directly to her from such a high level expert and to be able to put your questions to her as well. So in her session, doctor debias is going to dive into the science of diet health, showing that there is more consensus than is sometimes commonly believed. And she has a full session that she was going to go into some of that detail. And in addition to kind of outlining what we know and how we know it, she will then be able to explain, well, if that is actually the case, then how are we still facing various epidemics related to various chronic diseases that are diet related. So you can read the full details of that session and all the other sessions in the link that is in the description to this episode on whatever app you're currently listening. So just click through there. And the whole idea for the day is that you'll come away clearer on nutrition topics, be better able to understand how to appraise information. And I just have much more confidence in making evidence based decisions in practice. So whether you're a dietician, a nutritionist, a health professional, a nutrition science student, or a nutrition researcher in an academic institution, I genuinely think you're going to get a bunch from this. And of course, the awesome thing about in person events is that you get to meet and chat with other nutrition enthusiasts, as well as us on the sigma team. And you can hang out with us during the event and hopefully after the event too. So I'm really looking forward to getting to meet a number of you or seeing a number of familiar faces again having a chat and maybe having a beer with all of you afterwards. And if it is your first time visiting Dublin, then let me know. And I'll make sure to give you a few ideas of some things you might want to check out whilst you're here. So on the day, lunch is going to be included. There are student right tickets for currently enrolled college students. You can get discounts if you're booking as a group, et cetera, all the details are the link in the description to this episode or over on the website.

"Was going on on the Saturday. Maybe I'd say they were probably after two years being closed. They were probably a fraction ring rusty. I could be a bit slow getting on myself at times. You know? But as we say, you know, the cathedrals are open guys. Let's all head back. Yeah, but you want everybody to have a great experience and you don't want someone making a long journey, whether it's a long journey in Ireland to get there or a flight over or the ferry over from the UK and have an experience that they then didn't enjoy. Because the equine experience was absolutely superb. I mean, the stars were on show. They were all there for us to see. Well, we did a poll. And there were 2123 votes in 21 hours, 31% of you said that the Dublin racing festival in leprosy was superb all round. But 46% of you, the majority said great racing poor service. So take note of that number still. And look, I love you. Probably my favorite race course in the world. Aside from ascot, a favorite, my favorite place to go racing. But great works on day four efforts on Saturday and that's gotta be cold out. From darmo and from me and miss Kennedy, thank you so so much for listening. We have a special podcast coming out during the week and of course we'll be previewing the weekend's action as well. On Thursday, until then, be safe, be well, we'll talk to you soon. God bless..

"Yeah. It was a good thing for us to have witnessed, I think, in the sense that in 20 years time, when we're all kind of ill fellas, we'll be repeating this one as part of the story, you know. And she's going to become racing folklore. Rachel is going to become racing folk doors. She didn't cost an exorbitant amount of money when she report by Peter maloney. I think a 150,000 which is a lot of money. I'm not belittling it, but in the overall mix it isn't the record speeds for itself. It's nothing but phenomenal. And the ability yesterday looked exactly like last year, if you ask me, even though she's out to getting one year older, you can't see any change reading from 7 to 8. You know, an absolute superstar of the sport with the right jockey as well on board. And my thoughts on it here ran well. And I think there's a little bit of chicken still on the bone for Henry and he'll have her tuned to perfection and for champion hurdle day, but it was a pleasure to watch it was a joy to watch for the English listeners on RTE, the Irish television station Rachel would have been interviewed afterwards, and she was quite emotional from the chair that she got on the way down, not among me to say on the on the way back. And there's nothing you can really say to enhance the story around the form. The form is what it is. It's now really about the fact that you're dealing with something special, like a real superstar. So you know, I was in office. What did you think of it yourself? I was stunned. I was absolutely stunned by how moved Rachel was afterwards as well. I mean, she's experienced at all. She's won a champion hurdle. She's one of the Irish champion before she's on a grand national. And I think it says an awful lot about just what how much crowds matter. Because last year, it was empty grandstands. At leopardstown and a cheltenham, you had an empty pretty much entry as well. Yes. And so to just have that roar, like there was a massive roar from the crowd when we were in the grandstands when the tape went up for the first race that Danny won on day one, and it was a raw reminiscent of cheltenham. I kid it was unbelievable and to be there for that was just like, we're back. We're back, baby. And it felt amazing. And I think honeysuckle is a very, very special mayor. The job that Henry has done with her to keep her so sound and how he manages to peak her for the Hatton's grace. Which she's dominated now for the last three years. The decision to go for the mayor's hurdle, first of all, and then go for the champion hurdle was absolutely the right one. You're now going for back to back champion hurdles. I don't think there's anything that can beat her. And there's a lot of exciting novices coming through. So maybe something next season. Could put a dent in her attempt to emulate is to rock by winning three in a row. But the one disappointment with honeysuckle would be she's emerged at a time where it's probably the weakest hurdling championship division I've seen. In my, in my experience of watching racing, I don't think I've ever seen a division so weak for the champion hurdle. That's not her fault. It wasn't epitomes fault. The year before she won it. It's just what's there. And you can only beat what's put in front of you. And she keeps on doing it. Each and every time she keeps on doing it and I don't see her being beaten each other. I think you're right. 100%. I think it's going to be a joy to watch. And, you know, as you say, you can only beat what's around. People will always compare over time the different eras so to speak, but you know I think that as we think about COVID and as we think about racing and how racing, I think, has burned out of COVID and done really well, this may be pretty much at the front of it. She just looks the part and everything. You know, there's just everything about it is right to be honest and genuinely really enjoyed it. Can't see anything beating her either. You won't be betting on the race at all. The champion heard I'm referring to here. It's going to be one to enjoy. Yeah. And you don't need to have a bet on it. Just sit back, relax. And enjoy indulge. It's just going to be a fascinating race to watch how Rachel rides the race tactically and just see your fly off that hill. But you don't need to have a bet on us. If you want to put her in doubles and troubles fair enough, correct. But you're not steaming in at a short price. The Tata soles Ireland novice hurdle was hard enough race, but we had the champion bumper winner in sir Gerard or sir Gerard as Melissa called them last week or a couple of weeks ago on the show, which you're quite like..

"Reasonably comfortable with that. That is not based on any inside information. But he's gone odds on with the number of firms for the race. It would put him in a clash with barbal injure. I'm not that scared about. I'm not that terrified of him. What you did over hurdles is one thing. What you do have offenses is another. And we'll see. I think California is a much better chaser. Then bob bolinger is much more fluent in the air, and he's done more of offenses. Then bob on your house. So he deserves to be the price that he is. Now, for those who've gotten on run or no bet, like seeing ten to 11 four to 5 is a big galling about barbell as your four to 5 gallop and the sharp ten to 11. Come on. That's black or red, isn't it? Ridiculous. And then you're not acknowledging that, oh yeah, by the way, we're gonna go fours but long press. What? He's a series horse. But what I would say is the 11 of four about California show. If you're prepared to take the risk that he doesn't go and just have to put up with it, then I think that's fair. And I don't think you'll be upright on the day. Shagan pours water. Back in the winters and closure easily, green tea ends up being beaten 73 links. Jesus. Paul's horses wore awful. I mean, Frodo and we know is better than that, but dear God, he gets out with the washing and so the green tea. Shaq and pours will just put on a superb display and fair play to Dennis he said that want to follow him home will be done vegan and he was spot on. So for those of you who did the exacto, you were getting yourself some free cash there because it was really nothing to worry about. Is deadly Willie Mullins was very keen to emphasize, he's the number one. Okay, which is not what the betting suggests for the champion chase, but how impressed were you with him? And what do you think of his children? I just wanted to go back to something that just said a second ago. You said Paul's nickel Paul Nichols horses were what? With the washing. With the washing,.

"That Sunday are expanding into the UK I know that you have UK owners already who are watching their horses flying over at seahorses run, but the opportunity for British base listeners, whether you're in Wales, Scotland, England, for you to be able to invest in a race with all about Sunday with Donald McCain, who, as we said, is a complete change of fortune. And that graph is talking about that either. No, I mean, and he hasn't been. I'm very taken with any time I interview. I've been very taken with that for talk sport that he's always been very open about how disappointing that was, but to put a button on it, we're going to go over and do a podcast with him. You and I and that will be a special, which should be fascinating. And hopefully, we'll have all of it Sunday open day as well, which should be a lot of fun. And I'm very excited that because 73% of our audience and according to Spotify, there are 57,000 listeners per show. Wow. So 73% of our audience are in the UK, 19% in Ireland. Third is America. Fourth is Australia. Then Canada, then the United Arab Emirates Dubai, essentially. With some sprinkled around Spain, France, Sweden. So expats who want to hear familiar voices want to hear a taste of home, but want to be able to keep track of their favorite sport. And the fact that we have such a large following, this is not an attack on racing TV by any means, because I think they're the best racing channel. And I think the content they do are amazing, but to put it in context, racing TV of 55,000 subscribers total in and around that. It's 57,000 listeners per show for the final forum podcast. So that's all down to you. That's all that you are incredible audience. Each and every one of you are amazing. And that's why it was so great to get to meet some of you on the day at leprechaun because not being able to be out and be basically in our homes and not be able to attend to attend the cathedrals of racing for two years. Has heart in the UK, you've been able to go back racing, but we haven't in Ireland. So it's nice and it's great. And it was terrific to be there on the day. Just before we move on with our review of the Dublin racing festival, kaluki, of course, all about Sunday are official syndicate partner and kaluki racing are official.

"Who is the winner of the triumph hurdle in my view, MS is the horse of finished third without a doubt. Available at the minute at 20 to one. All right, and I hear me out for a second. So we're living in a world today where horses win races. Everyone gets mad excited and they actually have to climb over each other to back. So we've had money all year for field or with money last week for piper. We had money this morning for the bone, but really at 20 to one, you've got a Willy Mullins horse there that ran third in a great one first time over hurdles. Now that is no mean feat. Up against horses that have won their maidens. Up against horses that have been campaigned, you know, over Christmas, et cetera, whether it's the tight turns, whether it's Phil door, whatever. This horse by jukebox jury came out on Saturday and ran third up against the horses that are heading to market. And if the guys watched the replay, he actually ran very keen over the first half of the race. Danny Mullins dropped him out of the bike with very, very steady horses running very, very keen was jumping okay, but was looking for its head as the second half of the race came settled an awful lot more and if people were motivated Phil door because of how the horse runs and how the horse takes out his head and how honest Phil dorr is, well, you can draw exactly the same comparison with eel at day tums. And a 20 to one when you're looking at such short prices the other horses, a horse that can run third and be placed in a grade one and got a racing post rating of a 137 for that. First time out, this is a proper racehorse. And absolutely proper race horse. So on the basis that the horse goes to the triumph,.

"Were sweating the bumper. They were sweating the mayor's bumper and breathing a sigh of relief. But many others are going on. Dang it. To be fair, though, good weekend. Great weekend. And the brains of all about Sunday is here to break it down with me from the Dublin racing festival. And the main man behind all about Sunday, one of the best analytical minds when it comes to racing, full stop. Bloodstock, betting, breeding, race planning, Darwin, welcome back to the show my friend. Thanks very much, Emma. That's a bit of an intro fair play. Thank you. Should be your LinkedIn profile, and it's very much deserved. That better. Before we dive headfirst into the key races from the Dublin racing festival, breaking news from all of us Sunday. I'd love to be the one to deliver this, but it's your job, my man. Breaking news. It's all about Sunday fans. If we were just saying there, but before we came on air, we'd been on the text together anyway last week and I was telling you that I was going to the UK to meet a few trainers. And dropped into Don McCain last Wednesday and spent a bit two hours with him. What a guy what a trainer attention to detail around the horses was incredible, facilities were incredible and basically agreed immediately to send him a couple of horses, had a chat around that. He was excited, gave you a show to say that we can do a podcast with him over there so the two of us will get to get on a Ryanair flight, maybe in the next week or so, we can do a podcast. And then he's up for a, all about Sunday, stroke, final furlong, open morning for up to 200 owners. So that I thought was a quality suggestion from Donald and a great opportunity for all of the listeners in the UK to come along to something to something like that. If we do our dates well and I'll be in contact with them in the coming days, we do our best to try and get in there before cheltenham and it just will be great for people to see how he goes about his business. What he does in terms of training his horses and why he gets such good results out of horses that would be described as being probably on the cheaper side in the market. And, you know, he wouldn't mind me saying that. He doesn't have owners there going 200 grand horses, but he does incredibly well. He's on a 110 111 owners. I would say at this stage. So he's probably trained more runners, sorry, sorry, winners than anybody else in the UK, even though he's probably 5th in the table. So he certainly can bang out a winner and we can have a chat and I'll explain to you later on the things that I picked up in terms of the detail that he goes into and why he gets those horses to perform as well as he does. First trainer to a hundred winners in the UK this season as well. Yeah, and I think, you know, Paul Paul Nichols is at the top of the table, but I don't have it here in front of me, but, you know, the table has done based on prize money. And Donald is kind of at a different level in terms of he's he doesn't have a huge artillery in terms of grade one horses, but he does incredibly well in getting winners at a horses. And we would just have a cup of tea. You know, sitting sitting in his house and we just had a chat about his stats, his strike rates, the type of horses he likes. You know, what he buys what he doesn't buy. And I think when someone is kind of that articulate as well, as you understand the content is really important on our app and Donald be available to do loads of content and explain an awful lot to people about why he achieves the number of winners that he does. Which will be fascinating and we'll talk a little bit more about it a little bit later on in the show. But the halfway point, because as you mentioned, they're Paul Nichols. Don't look into currently 7th. 897,000 in prize money, by the way. Right. And that's not currently updated, actually, because Donald is, I think he banged in a few minutes today. So he's on a hundred and 3714. Yep, a 114 winners for the year. My mind is working. That's a good start. So a 114 winners for the year so far, Paul Nichols 1.8 million in prize money, Nick Anderson 1.4 million. But Paul Nichols and indeed we'll discuss them as we talk about two of his runners from the Dublin racing festival. Jesus were brutal. They were absolutely awful and worse than a case of we've given them the flu jab. And that's why they've. But we'll get into it. And we'll begin with the Nathaniel lacy and solicitors €50,000 50,000 pounds, cheltenham bonus for stable staff, novice hurdle, grade one. This is a fantastic initiative, which has been landed by the modern camp. Paul Nolan came so close to doing so latest exhibition, all of this money doesn't go to the owner, it doesn't go to the trainer, it goes to the stable staff. So it's a fantastic initiative. And it was let's dance for Willie Mullins and I remember talking to a rich Richie and him me saying, why aren't you on the source in the ballet more? Because if we run in the mayors, it's a fair chance of disabled stuff getting the money. And that was the whole point. So fair, but actually fairly dotted up in that race. But we shall begin with the wrong Manila. Look, it's brilliant for the breeder as well, by the way..

"It's a good race, isn't it? I mean, it's really turned out starting out to be a top class Mars race now and you know it's not easy. It's not straightforward. I totally stick with John Coley's merit. Talk to her on a big race. How you stranger? If you're on the ground and she was already second and a listed race in for and yeah, she's probably see the sea moon, sea moon. So that's a good pedigree called stain Perry. We only concern will be she's not over big. Or she can definitely go. So I give a shout out for her each strategy. Okay. I'll give a very quick mention to ebah grace. I'm sure I've just butchered the pronunciation there and sorry. It's not Sarah grapes because you beat my horse scarlet witch at the not sour grapes at all. But the cup, I got a message from somebody connected to the Mullins camp saying we're going to hammer you tomorrow. And I didn't know whether that was a threat or just like your horse is just going to beat mine. And yeah, they were sending another warning. And Lisa O'Neill, who wrote Scott, which was saying all the talks about modern source, all of the talk is about the woolly moment source. So just be warned, but we have a plan and we're going to go out there and run our race. And she want to find Scarlett fantastic race. You can completely draw a line through cork. When cork is heavy, it's bloody heavy and scarlet witch does not want those conditions. So draw a line through that and we're looking forward to the next day. So if you're looking at that form and going no, don't concern yourself. And.

"Have a setback in between now and the dream more. So I wouldn't expect them to rock up here all guns blazing. Should I say? And what I'd expect him to be a lot better children than he would be here if you ran here. We can edge. So yeah, I'd probably stick with fury road. To really put it up to them anywhere and mister maxi to just as a sporting each veterans well, fury road has the experience. He's also a nice price of 7s, by the way, with kaluki sportsbook right now. As opposed to the long nods on favorite, the so fury road is the pick from Dennis. We are recording on Thursday so we don't have full decorative declarations for Sunday yet. So we're kind of playing a bit of a guessing game. That being said, I'd be surprised if he didn't rock up and just look back at his dream more run. That was a massive run over this distance. In terms of Gallup on the shop, the fact that you have said the Turner's it's the brown advisory, by the way I should say the RSA is now the brand advisory, of course it is. Every racer cheltenham is the brown advisory Venice. I'm pretty sure they've sponsored every race at some point or another. Good folks in front of us are either invited us to their VIP box and we shall take them up on that at some point. But I'm fascinated to see gallop on the shop and the fact that you've said Turner's just is music to my ears and makes my heart beat that little bit faster because I've backed them for the Turner's double figure price back to again, I've backed him again and I've backed them again. The responsibility folks. All for the turners. Because I don't think you'll go for the RSA. And sorry, brand advisory. And he's 5 to four for the brand advisory. And I don't think that's the race he's going to go for. So taking upon, but the fact that Dennis arika is just coming to the show and agree to me, makes me feel that little bit more confident. Right.

"And I had my mind made up in bunch of sound that what I'm going to do today is going to give me the best chance of winning the race and that was the front. Now she didn't necessarily have to make the role but we did discuss it beforehand garden and myself and no more than we decided that brand just do if you think that's the right thing to do is do it. I got on the inside and punchy stone nearly immediately aligned upon the rail. And when you have a mirror that's getting pounded, you jump off on the inside in front and puncture sound. No one really understands if you look the punches down from a drone or from the William hill camera. I used to call it from the sky down. Oh, yeah. You really do realize how much ground you give away if you're not underrated. It's so deceiving. That if you get on the Internet and punch them, the amount of ground you can save is huge. It's not compared. It's nothing compared to the likes of it or you wouldn't compare it to the likes of naven or Lampard's town you can go a bit wider and get away. It was a punchy sound very difficult. So if you get on the rail and a chair and punch stone, especially receipt of 18 pounds, you're going to give yourself every chance of winning the race. Now, she was so impressive that they I mean, she was going along. I knew she knew we were going to clip that day. And I was happy enough to allow that to happen. Due to the amount of weight she was getting. I had weighed up my head that I could allow the Boston a small but early on. Because the light wave from come into play later on. And it works, but she was so impressive. You know, but I didn't really know what to think under there. I was very, very good, but you know I'm not, you know, I still don't know. But when I order 11. I was the day I got the real feel of her. I felt like I wasn't. I felt like I wasn't going quick. But if you look at the times and in garden said straightaway afterwards, Jesus, you were born some gallop, when you passed on and he usually stands at the winter line, you know, with a lot of he thought we were flying. That's a real sign of top class cars like when you don't feel like you're going that quick, but you're killing everything behind and that's the feeling I got offered that day and from that day I said to myself right this one could win a really fast room too much on a stiff track. And I'd say the air is definitely the race for it to be honest. Okay. Do you need us to do a Tonya Harding and get Jack Kennedy's knees taken out? Look to be honest, I'm so long in the game and so experienced. I suppose if you go back ten or 15 years, yeah, be disappointed, but I'd be delighted if Jack Kennedy wins and I wish him well. And it also allows you for the owners to do day want to grab one horses and put me on her when Dave Jack and then weren't available. And Gordon as well. He was good enough to stick meal when you know and he's been support me for 5 years. You know, since I come back here, it's the only track he's the only handful of trainers learned to support me since come back here consistently. And he's one of them. So, you know, you know, I take it as a comms and you know, I wish them well and best of luck to them. And look at them in the meantime, hopefully they'll think of me in the future, you know? We'll be up having a stable tool in the next year. I said that, ask for it. In the next few weeks, so we'll have a quiet word and Jack is no relation. So there could very well be a Tonya Harding stylish. He's done a fourth sport. He's not a Ford cousin or anything. Not that I know of anyway. But then again, you never know what the Kennedy line. Who knows? So with switch to we're both on review to tell and Sam is the horse that you're advising to just keep an eye out for as the danger to tell. Hopefully, gets the job done.

She's missing it there. I think she's missing, but I'm sure she's still have an import of some sort. I mean, at the moment, yeah, they do a fantastic job in leprosy. And she'll be watching on, I'm sure. Oh, damn right, she was telling me it's kind of killing her. She's missing it, but she will be missed from it as well.

Leopard stone will be in touch with you. Come up say hello. We'll be there on the Saturday and Sunday as well. Looking forward to it. Before we talk about the races, ground is going to be crucial because Simon holt was saying on the weekend review about how dry it is in the UK, not the case in Ireland. The official going right now is yielding on both courses and they've watered throughout the week as well. A 160 millimeters was applied throughout January they were saying, what are you expecting as you build up to the festival yourself? Yeah, I think the ground is going to be perfect. I mean, they do an extremely good job and lapras time. Look, I suppose going back over the years, I can remember writing years ago and that was something where it was could nearly be called off, you know, it was that west. And they've done immense work since to have it right. And especially, especially the last couple of years the last four years with Dublin race investment has been a very difficult time due to the exchange and the kind of the seasons, you know, and they've been unlocking it rain or whatever. But I think t-shirts are going to be fantastic, to give an eel and ground. Expect it to be you into south and the harder track. And I expect it to be even maybe this afternoon in places on the gear track. And you know, if they have come in for a bit of criticism, more beers, but I think this year is going to be absolutely fantastic. I've actually met a few of the ground's groundsman up there and the head management on underground system and everything up there and I've walked the track plenty times and you know I just think they're doing a fantastic job. They're doing the best of what they got and I expect it to be no different this weekend. Dennis, what's leopardstown like to ride and more specifically, what kind of horse would you be advising fungal for a podcast listeners to be looking out for? Because there's that deceptively steep incline. To the finish, which has resulted in so many epic finishes throughout the years. But until you're actually add leopard stone and you see it for yourself. It kind of has to be seen to be believed. So what kind of force really thrives around there? Yeah, look, I think leopard town is one of the best tracks in the world, really, it's one of the fairest tracks you very rarely see in unlucky or the older shouldn't win. It's usually the best hours wins and the reason for that is it's got such a steep climb from the turn in to the finish line. It's very deceptive in terms of watching on telly. You wouldn't really notice. But if you were when you're riding at even if you walk to track, you can really see that the climb is quite significant. And you know you'll fairly know what if you're on a horse and you send in your own well turn it in, but you still have an awful long way to go one of the key one of the key factors I think to write an episode is certainly conservatives which energy you can to at least halfway up the running or halfway up the stretch. Should I say you know what these kind of getting their glasses of that kind of ride really would usually the best horse wins you need a good heart to really operate him as a real member someone to be honest, jumping and stamina and galloping and all of that really, really does come into play at that time. What we're going to see all of that in the first race that we talk about the one of 5, which will be live on RTE, but also on racing TV. We have market. The markets have been a bit bonkers today, but hollow games is currently 15 to 8 with kaluki. I think they'll do better for you on what's up. And then what do you want? Fours, grand jury is 11.2 million crooners 6s, bronze 6s, Eric bloodaxe, 6s, and here's where you kind of have to be careful with your bets. There's Manila crooner, and Manila cocoon. Not confusing at all. 12 and it's 33s about freedom to dream. This is a really fascinating race a couple of exposed sources in here, Braun being won, but hollow games we saw behind gentle last time. Eric bloodaxe, I thought was deadly limerick, but it was on very different ground. That being said, I like him an awful lot. What's your thoughts on the race? Yeah, I like Harry Potter as well. I think he's an improving sort of actually. And if Louis is 7 year old, he's got some terrific bomber farm. And as well as some very, very good murder runs and I think Joseph O'Brien's house is just really hitting farm as well. They're really top form at the moment and I think he's definitely a horse with a big show there. Hollow games, you know, he's been for me. He looked a bit labored or something at NASA. I wasn't quite sure, but.

I've introduced articles of impeachment on president Joe Biden. The reason why I've done so is for his disgraceful actions, having to do with Afghanistan, abandoning Americans, arming and terrorist nation, the Taliban, which is treason, giving aid and comfort to our enemies. But also, I've also introduced articles of impeachment for the national security crisis created at our southern border, which today is actually being invaded. But heading into this week, perhaps the most evil and disgusting thing that is going to happen and this 117th Congress is the bill that's going to be introduced that makes it a federal law to allow abortion up until the day of birth. This wall says in God we trust and if that is the case, then this Congress will reject this evil Bill and protect the innocent unborn. If this nation becomes a nation where we have such a federal law that can kill a baby up until the day of birth, the God will no longer provide protection in his grace over America. Thank you. I yield the remainder of my time. Okay, come on. Members. This is president. Come on, you can't make this up, people. I mean, this woman is a dope. She's a doper. She's certifiably insane.

"You think that's That there is an openness out there in the academy to rethinking. Darwin fundamentally because you you go back in the book and you talk about with some of his earlier critics yes.

"dublin" Discussed on Horizon Talk Radio's podcast
"Very nice robert. I can tell you something was all about them with much. Yeah absolutely well. I can tell you something as the second song off. The ep represents the first you know. It's the most lyrically dense song. I think i'm really just trying to be very very articulate and that song just trying to say the most amount of things i possibly because in a song and make it all ryan's fit together. It's specifically abides. I won't say who but something that irks me about. That song is that it's a little bit negative like it's someone i really don't like and it's it's all about being attacked by somebody in the context of a party or something and having to talk to them and listen to them and you know that they're talking rubbish butch you'd want to be source polite in just kind of grin smile truth but eventually you just say i'm just going to leave. It was great opium joyce out. But i will see you later. And that's what it's about You know this there's lines in there like or is it contorts your minds in ways that i have not seen before so yeah. That's kind of. I was just trying to be very disconnected with being being annoyed with someone you know. I think a lot of people sun's just for that reason is cyber someone annoyed some someone they love someone. They miss something. They're happy about something that's out around so that they write the songs for that. Reason is people and that could sell because when people listen it means something offenders in las. I do of subjects. But last night. I did have another musician on and she sang a song and it was basically this when she was dating people. Let us to take her to the cheap ones and she could never wonder whether they didn't take papa restroom. Does you might have sung about that kind of thing is it. Works definitely works to did you ever gone told me about. Yeah we little bit. I mean it was all domestic and we never got to go to britain or france or anything but we just kind of wins through the main cities in ireland galway limerick cork and dublin. And we never go to belfast. But yeah i mean that's the most fun thing but you can see what is going touring and that's the thing that i don't like it but it's being solo is is not Having like a band to tour it. I do gang. Then you sign up yourself. So i'm planning on putting it. Together and touring once all of this stuff sort of You know opens up and and yeah hitting heating the major places in ireland's in the rest of your if possible you know what your side never. Deputy is a hard business and the internet helps a little bit but it isn't perfect. Does a lot of people tell me won't find the manager. Now i would have any moves. It can hope because the ifa one this amount of money or they want me to do this and of indie artists and probably let yourselves be their let-let's episode and maybe join the group as well. You know some people are now. And and that's actually i in the record liable and then we can puppies because that's what we wanted to do. We don't want to make money but he's not have it but we're here because i'm music is our first priority. The funds are probably equal first or second sought the money lights on. 'cause you got invested any job to get money even like a law degree you know got old degree. It doesn't mean you can go and work as a judge somewhere. It probably means somewhere as a junior. Even what the white hope to the bigger money. That's exactly it i mean. It's a pretty apt analogy like my main thing. It was at some point in my life but i made the conscious To make it into more of a science thing. I'm like i understand that if you do is as your main thing. It has to be very monetarily driven. But you know the position that i'm in a position a lot of people in if if they're trying to get a main job like a nine to five thing then they have the freedom with the music to do whatever kind of music they want and not to be constrained by having to make it into something.
