Order your Fairy Letter!

Many of us will be familiar with stories a legends of the Sí: how they live in fairy forts/hills, how blackthorn and other trees and bushes have their own fairy spirits and should not be cut without apology, how we should not dig up fairy hills and much more.  When the opportunity arose to ally with Queen Maeve and use it as a way to raise funds and awareness of this other place, the Fairy Realm, we had to grab it with both hands.

Claremorris Community Radio is delighted to announce a collaboration with Queen Maeve, of Fairyland, to offer anyone the chance to receive (or order for a loved one) a Fairy Letter. Each letter will contain a drawing of the appropriate fairy, as well as the Ogham lettering of the recipient’s name.

All you have to do to book your unique gift is order one here or come in to the station.  You can pay via Paypal, at a low special introductory price of €6.50, which includes a bespoke drawing of your appropriate fairy, as well as the recipient’s name in Ogham.  Queen Maeve needs the names and addresses of the recipients, their favourite colour, age, gender, their favourite pastime or passion and anything else you think she should know that you with to have in the special letter.  We will do the rest.

A message from our new Chairperson

CCR Chairperson Johnny-Kirrane
CCR Chairperson Johnny Kirrane

At the CCR Board Meeting last month I was elected Chairperson. Firstly I would like to thank my proposer, Roderick and seconder, John. It is a great honour to hold this post in what is a hugely important community enterprise.

I would also like to thank the outgoing Chairperson Delores Keaveney for her stewardship over the last four years. Her input and dedication at all levels of CCR are an inspiration and I am full of admiration for her hard and often difficult work which has moved the station forward during her tenure in the Chair.

It is my intention with your cooperation to continue this work. Together I hope we can make CCR the focal point of our community; providing services and supports to clubs and organisations, engaging with social exclusion and promoting democracy, human rights and sustainability. We should also be conscious of reinforcing local identities and acting as a catalyst for integration and inclusion.
