Today, multi-platinum selling songwriter and mental health activist, Niall Breslin announced the launch of his own podcast series, Where is my Mind?. Available to listen to today across all streaming platforms, the six episode podcast series will guide listeners on how to navigate the manic, always-on and head-melting world they find themselves in today.

Where is my Mind? will follow Niall discussing what impact today’s society has on individuals, discussing a variety of coping techniques on how to deal with the overstimulated mindset people find themselves in by introducing the basics of mindfulness practice and meditation. Each podcast episode will enable listeners to learn the skills to help with breaking that autopilot mode, how to navigate constant distraction, how to be a more skilful stress-head and even how to get good at Jenga.

Speaking on the announcement, Founder of Where is my Mind?, Niall Breslin said ‘We all share a lot of the same issues and insecurities and to ask are there practical things we can all do to lessen the impact of the lightning-fast, high pressure world on our ability to be able to sleep soundly at night? For me the podcast platform is the most intimate way to explore this context in more detail and perhaps support people in the internal and external difficulties they will inevitably face in this life’.

Available to stream today, the first episode of Where is my Mind? discusses how individuals end up zoning out and living on autopilot in today’s hectic world, while looking at various techniques to overcome this habit ensuring to stay present in everyday life.

Other episodes within the podcast series will discuss various topics helping to create a healthier mind space when dealing with various issues such as distraction, chaos in today’s modern world, communication and perspective. Each episode is accompanied by a structured mindfulness programme and a guided meditation where Bressie leads the listener in the principles of mindfulness practice.

Working exclusively with Acast across the podcast series, Jennifer Dollard, Acast’s Content Manager for Ireland said 'Where Is My Mind? is such a beautifully-crafted podcast around mindfulness. It really taps into the power of podcasting – an intimate and engaging environment that helps you to switch off from the world around you. We’re proud to have such a progressive show as part of our network’.

The Where is my Mind? podcast series will be released weekly on Mondays and is available on Acast, Apple Podcasts, Spotify and all other channels.


It’s been a month since Roz Purcell acknowledged her relationship with Zach Desmond on 2FM, and now – finally – she’s released their first Insta pic as a couple.

Having split with Blizzards singer Bressie in May this year, the Tipperary native was first spotted with music promoter Zach at Electric Picnic.

And it now seems the pair are ready to make things Instagram official, as over the weekend the stunning model used social media to document their date night in London.

The casual snap shows the couple at an American football game and is captioned: “NFL with a serious amount of snacks.  Neither of us had a clue what was going on #nygiants #london.”

Sounds like a great date to us!



The Blizzards were great you guys. 

Who can forget such tunes as Fantasy and Trust Me I'm a Doctor all delivered in the dulcet tones of the ever hunky Niall Breslin, more formally known as Bressie. 

Despite their popularity and promise, we only got two albums from the Blizzards which is obviously not even close to enough. 

Despite officially breaking up in 2009, the five-piece announced via social media that they were planning a little reunion and some new releases by the sounds of things. 

That sounds VERY promising. 

Speaking to the Irish Mirror back in January, the 34-year-old Mullingar native said he would love for the Blizzards to get back in the studio together. 

"I am completely open to it – I’d like it to happen naturally as we all still remain really close friends."

"When we took a break we always said unless the five of us are absolutely hungry for this then we won’t do it. I would never go back with three or four – it has to be the five of us."

Bring it on.

So what does the Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival and Niall Breslin aka Bressie have in common?

The ever popular Fringe Festival has been dominating our streets and theatres in Dublin for the past couple of weeks so we thought we’d better check out one of these productions! The Belle Bottoms is a musical comedy featuring two sassy ladies and their hilarious outlook on what it was like growing up in the 1970’s.

Our Entertainment Reporter Niamh Geaney got chatting to Bressie on his involvement and also to the Musical Director Liam Bates who in the past has worked with the likes of Bryan Adams and Bon Jovi!

As we had Bressie on hand we thought we’d try get him to tell us who is going to fill Dolores’s coaching seat on the Voice, what are these production company rumours we’ve been hearing and if he plans to delve into acting a bit more!

Niamh went along to see the show after and she says if you’re a fan of disco and laughter, it’s for you! The Belle Bottoms is on in the Smock Alley Theatre until Saturday the 20th of September and is also making a spin to Spiegeltent in Wexford from the 29th to the 31st of October.

If you have missed any of this week’s shows, then fear not, the catch-up will be on its way to you shortly! Enjoy
