St. Patrick’s Day 2019

Claremorris Community Radio will be doing our annual outside broadcast on St. Patrick’s Day. We will be broadcasting live throughout the afternoon, taking in the town’s parade.

Symmetrix Hail Salon will once again be our base for this outside broadcast, which will be on air from 1-5pm.  The parade itself will begin at 3pm and we will be carrying the commentary from the stage in The Square.  At the same time, we will also be broadcasting the parade on Facebook Live.

Bridie Sheeran will be broadcasting live from the salon from 1pm until the start of the parade.  Once the parade is over, Bridie will carry out interviews with those involved in its organisation and also some of the people who took part.
