Swifts are amazing and beautiful birds that arrive in Ireland each spring from their winter homes in Africa. Alas, year after year there are fewer and fewer of them flying about in our skies.
What can you do to help boost the swift population in your local area? Listen to Swiftly Declining, as Cleo deVito and Lynda Huxely talk to secondary school pupils, environmental groups and concerned citizens about building nesting boxes and other positive action to save these precious wild visitors from disappearing from Irish skies.
Swiftly Declining will be broadcast on CCR on Sunday, Nov. 19th, at 2pm, and again on Tuesday, Nov. 21st, at 8pm.
This program was produced and presented by Cleo deVito and was funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland with the Television Licence Fee.
Our Sports Roadshow crew are on the road again for our pre-match outside broadcast. Join us this Friday night in Ronan’s of Bekan, where our hosts Austin Garvin and Billy Fitzpatrick will lead a host of GAA legends, as they look forward to Sunday’s All-Ireland football final.
Our panel includes well-known GAA personalities John Prenty (Connacht GAA Council Secretary), Frank Browne (manager of the Mayo senior ladies team), as well as former Mayo stars Trevor Mortimer and Mark Ronaldson.
Music on the night will be provided by Kevin Prendergast and John Kelly with several other guest musicians.
The event will take place on Friday, September 15th, from 10.30pm. It will be broadcast on “Facebook live” that night and will be aired on the station itself the following evening (Saturday 16th) at 6pm.
Hope to see you there for some ceol, craic agus caint!
