Following the airing of this programme, the station began a second course, this time with a selection of residents of the two Direct Provision centres in Galway city. This course was generously facilitated by our colleagues in Flirt FM, NUI Galway campus radio, who made their studios and rooms available to us for several weeks throughout November and December.
The programme created by the students of this second course will be aired on Claremorris Community Radio on Saturday, January 19th, at 5pm. It will be repeated on Tuesday next, January 22nd, at 7pm and will also be available on our mixcloud from the start of next week.
As part of the build up to the big Mayo v Galway championship match on Sunday, the second Sports Roadshow of 2018 will take place on Friday evening (May 11th).
The event will take place in Ryans’ Bar, Kiltimagh, with 9.30pm set as the start time. The panel on the night will feature our usual hosts Austin Garvin and Billy Fitzpatrick, alongside journalist Willie McHugh, former Mayo senior footballers Eugene Lavin and John Finn, and more.
Music on the night will be performed by Ollie Burke and friends.
As always, the roadshow will be shown live on Facebook and recorded for broadcasting on the radio. The show will then be broadcast at 8pm on Saturday evening and repeated at 11am on Sunday morning.
Thank you to everyone who supported our ‘Will Galway bate Mayo?‘ score prediction competition back in June. Overall, the terrific sum of €3,000 was raised for the radio station and our partner Pieta House.
This morning, several members of Claremorris Community Radio travelled to Tuam to present Pieta House with a cheque for €1,500.
Congratulations to all involved in the running of this very successful event.
