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.
This morning on the Good Morning Show, host Bridie Sheeran was joined in the studio by four other brilliant women:
Sandra Donnellan is a new presenter on Claremorris Community Radio, and she contributed some poems and readings to mark International Women’s Day.
Elaine Browne, Mayo’s Inspirational Woman 2018, runs the Perspective peer support space above Claremorris Family Resource Centre. She spoke about peer support and how women approach mental health recovery.
Melissa Walsh of MW Design spoke about the local chapter of business networking organisation BNI, of which she is a member. The Claremorris chapter of BNI is holding an open day this Tuesday 12th March, from 9.15 to 10.30 in the McWilliam Hotel.
Marie Creighton was also in the studio, and she reflected on the huge changes she has seen in the position of women in society over time.
