New playground and a bat colony

It’ll be a busy day at Claremorris Community Radio.

Minister Michael Ring will be in town this morning to open the new MUGA (multi-use gaming area) at Clare Lake.  He will also visit the recently-completed plaza at back of the town square.

Catherine Lavery will be reporting live from the opening, live on our Facebook page.  You can tune in from 11am.

A recording of Catherine’s interview with Minister Ring will then be broadcast as part of today’s Live at 2 show.

At 12 noon today, we will broadcast the first documentary created by our member Ed Coulson.  To mark Go Wild in Galway 2018, (part of National Biodiversity Week), Ed visited Moore Hall recently and spoke with Ruth Hanniffy of the Vincent Wildlife Trust.  Ruth told him all about the colony of Lesser Horseshoe Bats at Moore Hall.

The one hour long programme will be aired today at 12 noon and repeated tomorrow (Saturday 26th), again at 12 noon.

The TY Show

Over the past few months, the station has been visited by several transition year students from both Mount St. Michael and St. Colman’s College.

Five of these students: Hazel, Lucy, Nele, Hanna and Lisa, have now produced a radio programme, as a final project to mark the end of their time with us.

You can now listen to this show, which features a selection of their favourite tunes, alongside spoken pieces about their lives.

It will be broadcast on Thursday, May 24th at 11am, and repeated on Sunday 27th, at 5pm.
