SCHOOL CHRISTMAS RECORDINGS

Over the last two weeks, Claremorris Community Radio has visited NINE local schools to record some wonderful Christmas singing and music.

For their warm welcomes and beautiful singing and playing, thank you to the pupils and staff of:

Ballyhaunis Community School
Barnacarroll NS
Boys’ NS, Claremorris
Convent Primary School, Claremorris
Gaelscoil Uileog De Búrca
Kiltimagh St Louis CS
Mayo Abbey NS
Meelickmore NS
Mount St Michael Secondary School, Claremorris

You can hear their performances in three different broadcasts on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and St Stephen’s Day:

Barnacarroll NS: Christmas Eve at 11.00.

Ballyhaunis Community School, Gaelscoil Uileog De Búrca, Kiltimagh St Louis CS, Mayo Abbey NS, Meelickmore NS, Mount St Michael Secondary School: Christmas Day at 17.00.

Boys’ NS and Convent Primary School: St Stephen’s Day at 16.00.

(These broadcasts will also showcase adverts created this month by the brilliant TY Enterprise students from Ballyhaunis CS, Kiltimagh St Louis CS, and St Colman’s College.)

October team meeting

The October team meeting takes place in the Dalton Inn tonight at 7pm.  All  members (including those with concessions), associate members and, of course, the staff are all members of the Radio Team and all are welcome.  

The meeting will be about the plans for the future of the radio, now that a large portion of the cost of the move to the new studios is to be covered by a grant from Leader.  The Agenda will consist of:

  • presentation of the plans for the relocation of our studios, together with the financial implications, led by Pat Keane  
  • discussion of the plans by all present 
  • any other business (time-sensitive matters only, please, to keep the meeting from running on for too long!).

We hope to see as many members of the Team as possible. This is all about the future of our radio and the new opportunities now open to it.
