Hibernian Radio Hour, Podcast Sat. May 18, 2019

Tommy, John Paul, and Mike Haran

McCann’s Irish Oatmeal and Mike Haggerty Buick/GMC/Volkswagen present The Hibernian Radio Hour and this week’s show is a doozie. As we continue our focus on Irish First Responders, we taped our first show this season out on the patio of Lizzie McNeill’s, right on the Chicago river and it’s idyllic.  We’re honored to welcome three of the Haran brothers from the south side of Chicago. These are only three of the 13 Haran kids and many others are also First Responders, a testament to their mom and dad, both of whom emigrated to Chicago from County Mayo. The brothers are CFD Captain Tommy Haran, CFD Lieutenant John Paul Haran, and Orland Fire Protection Unit Engineer Mike Haran and they are hilarious together! As we sample some Kerry Gold cheese and have a few brews, the brothers entertain with stories, both scary and funny, and the laughter is infectious! Their road trip story alone, to Boston for a Red Sox game, qualifies them as future guests for non-stop laughs. Throw in our obits, some great music from Katie Grennan, and some audience participation of “Who Cares?” during Houli Town, and this is one helluva show. Tune in and tell your friends! God bless The Haran Brothers, they are a credit to Chicagoland!
