Wake of Small Hours

Donal Dineen

It is recommended to watch the video below a little later in the week as - if you are feeling anyway as vulnerable and fragile as I am this afternoon - crying in public is never pretty.

Another majestically shot Myles O'Reilly film, entitled 'The Wake of Donal Dineen and Small Hours', the mood caught in the six minute video is equal parts disbelief, devastation and defiance capturing the final moments of Donal Dineen's Small Hours - such a consistent champion of Irish independent music - 15 years on National Radio. The music of one such thoroughly deserving artist, Katie Kim, backdrops O'Reilly's work beautifully.

- 'Small Hours' with Donal Dineen last broadcasted on National Radio in December 2011
