Presentation to residents of Ballyhaunis Direct Provision

Last night, Claremorris Community Radio chairperson Pat Keane and trainer John Nolan travelled to Ballyhaunis to present certificates to the students who recently completed our QQI Level 3 course in Media Expression.

11 students completed the course, during the months of September and October 2018. Lessons took place both in the Ballyhaunis Direct Provision Centre and at the studios of Claremorris Community Radio.

Claremorris Community Radio congratulates all the students who completed the course. They are: Kim Agyemang, Mavis Kenosi Alom, Sameera Chaudry, Olufunmilayo Fabunmi, Vivian Fasanmi, Mariam Gooding, Daniel Kabongo, Fathi Mohamed, Owodunni Mustapha, Agyeiwa Owusu and Mwawi Silungwe.

As always, the students completed an hour-long radio programme as part of their submitted work during the course. If you missed the broadcast of this excellent and interesting production, it is still available on our online archive at www.mixcloud.com/claremorrisfm/life-in-direct-provision-in-ballyhaunis/

Claremorris Community Radio would like to thank Bridgestock Ltd., Mayo Intercultural Action and South West Mayo Development Ltd. for their assistance and cooperation in the running of this course.

Sports & Activity Group Profiles: Indoor Bowls

“We wouldn’t miss it now for love nor money – it’s so important,” says John Grant, Chair of Active Retirement in Claremorris and member of its Indoor Bowls Club.

In this edition we meet friendly rivals John Grant and Paddy McCallig, who introduce us to the game and the club, and have encouraging words for those who might be interested in starting.

Fellow bowlers Michael Halligan and Pádraig Hunt tell us how they came to bowls and what they like about it, and we also hear Carmel Kilgallon’s voice as she celebrates some good bowls, and laments the bad!
