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.

The poetry of Pat Macken


Acclaimed Claremorris poet Pat Macken visited our studios recently to record a selection of his work.

You can now listen to Pat reading his poems in a 1-hour special, which will be aired on Saturday next, October 29th, at 12 noon.

If you can’t get to the radio at that time, don’t worry, the programme will be repeated two days later, on Holiday Monday at 6pm.
