Send messages for Mayo Day

This Saturday is Mayo Day, a day when people at home and abroad celebrate all that is good about this great county and its citizens.

Here at Claremorris Community Radio we will broadcast several special live shows to mark the day:

  • 9-11am: The Good Morning Show, hosted by Pat Keane
  • 12-1pm: Ollie’s Jukebox, live from Claremorris Credit Union
  • 1-2pm: Girls’ Talk, live from Claremorris Credit Union
  • 2-3pm: Afternoon Delight, live from Claremorris Credit Union
  • 4-6pm: Catherine Lavery meets The High Kings

Throughout the day, our hosts will also be delivering any messages to friends and families who find themselves away from Mayo.  Look out for our forms, which have been placed in public venues around the town.  You can simply write in a message and the name of the person who you wish to send it to.  We are asking for a small donation of €2 for each message.

If you can’t find one of our forms, you can still submit a message.  The station is testing our a new system of communication: WhatsApp.  If you have WhatsApp on your phone or tablet, please feel free to submit a message for a loved one to this number: 087 1744293. In fact, should you so wish, you can use WhatsApp to submit an actual audio message for broadcast!  The €2 donation can also be submitted online, via our iFundraise page at or by simply clicking this handy button here…


Mise an File

To celebrate Poetry Day Ireland 2017, Claremorris FM is broadcasting a special programme, Mise an File,  featuring poets either from Claremorris or with a Claremorris connection. You might be surprised to know how many there are in the area – and we’ll only be able to include a few of them!

Presenter Anni Wilton-Jones, of the At The Crossroads arts programme, will introduce you to six poets, who will be reading a selection from their work. In exchange, Anni will share some of her own poems. With a range of different styles and subject matter on offer, there will be something to suit every taste.

Who will be on the programme?  Tune in and find out. You may guess who some of the poets will be but others may surprise you!

Mise an File will be broadcast on Thursday,  April 27,  at 8pm.
