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.

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

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.

Paul Wright, who has previously delivered two workshops here on the Sound & Vision programme, is returning to Claremorris this evening, February 13th, to deliver a talk on “A brief history of grace in Ireland, from a community radio perspective”.

The talk will take place in the Dalton Inn and will begin at 7pm.

Here is the timetable of the workshop:
First 55 minutes – speaker Paul Wright talks [using audio samples from past radio docs]
Next 10 minutes – Q & A
Next 20 minutes – refreshments break.
Next 25 minutes – participants divide into groups in order to devise their rough-draft plan/ treatment for their own draft radio project focusing on a story of grace / “the best of human nature”.
Final 10 minutes – Analysis of work done by groups and constructive feedback.

All participants will be given a hand-out, containing the essence of lecture/workshop.
