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.

Christmas songs and poetry

For the second year in a row, CCR visited Scoil Naisiunta Muire Gan Smal and recorded the school’s choir performing a selection of classic Christmas carols.

You can listen to these local children performing on two occasions over Christmas weekend. Together with a new recording of a Christmas poem by local poet Pat Macken, the carols will be broadcast at 1pm on Christmas Eve and at 2pm on Christmas Day.

We will also podcast the programme in the near-future.
