John Hayes joined Maria on The Saturday Cafe this week. There is no other way to describe John's skill at creating magnificent objects out of wood with his firm Special Branch Carvers than Master Craftsman. He has represented Ireland and Waterford all over the world, and he has appeared in various TV shows that have featured his art.
He comes from the musically talented Hayes family, which includes his late father Dick Hayes.
He stopped by the Saturday Cafe to meet up with Maria and talk about how he discovered his calling, why a career in show business was not for him, and whether he would consider a political career.
