Tune Into Italian


Last month I presented a special benefit Tune Into Italian show in my hometown Cork, Ireland – we raised over €1,000 for the Hope Foundation and had a lot of fun! I also had the pleasure of visiting a Primary School in County Galway to celebrate European Languages Day – you can see videos from both these events here.

Speak Up Videos – Extracts from the Roadshow

This month’s video, from the 2017-2018 Roadshow, is Look What You Made Me Do by Taylor Swift – you can preview it here.
