Children in Hospital Looking for Play Volunteers

Children in Hospital Ireland (CHI) is well known for providing play facilities in hospitals all over Ireland, and will be celebrating 50 years of voluntary service next year.

CHI are now recruiting volunteers for their playroom in Castlebar General Hospital. There is no upper age limit for volunteers, and both men and women are welcome.

CHI Marketing and Development Manager Maura Lavelle spoke to John Whittle on his Good Morning Show last Thursday, explaining what the organisation does, and how people can get involved.

Hollymount/Carramore will host the O’Mara Cup Final on Saturday evening when they will face local rivals Claremorris at 5pm. Claremorris Community Radio will provide live coverage of the final, including commentary by Austin Garvin and Billy Fitzpatrick.

It promises to be an entertaining final. Claremorris qualified from Group 2 with three wins out of three whilst Hollymount/Carramore emerged from a tight group 1, with three wins from four games.

Our live coverage of the game will begin at 4.45pm with John Whittle hosting the build-up to the match. Throw in will take place at 5pm and, should the game go to extra-time, coverage will continue until we have a result.
