Flirting on CR Day

The third annual National Community Radio Day takes place on Friday next, 23rd June, with stations around the country celebrating 22 years of community radio in Ireland.

As part of the celebrations, Claremorris Community Radio and Flirt FM, Galway’s student station, are engaging in a programme share.

From 9 to 11am, Catherine Lavery’s Good Morning Show, will be broadcast here and in Galway.  The show will feature a host of guests, discussing the past, present and future of our station.  Catherine will also have a super prize up for grabs during the morning!
