This week we are launching a new, second site on mixcloud: the CCR News Feed.  This feed will give listeners the chance to listen again to interviews and short pieces on local issues and news.

Galway did bate Mayo

Over 400 people entered our recent ‘Will Galway bate Mayo?’ competition and we thank all who did so.  No-one accurately predicted the scoreline in the match which was, of course, Galway 0-15 Mayo 1-11.

However, three people did correctly predict the points total of both teams.  Congratulations to the following, who will each receive a share of the €450 prize.  They are:

  • Mark Hyland
  • John Dooley
  • Mary Gorham

At this point, we would also like to all the venues who took care of a submission sheet: Tierneys (Foxhall), Lyons (Roundfort), Dempseys’ Olde Woods (Balla), Lallys (Garrafrauns), Sheridans (Milltown), Clarkes (Ballindine), Fraynes (Tooreen), Jackie’s (Ballindine), Oran Cabs (Oranmore) and CBE (Claremorris).

Thanks also to Donna Burke and staff, Pieta House, Tuam, and to everyone who helped out on the day of the match itself in Salthill.
