Tomorrow is going to be a very busy day for Claremorris Community Radio. Saturday, May 5th, is Mayo Day and, to mark the occasion, a group of our members will be in attendance at the flagship event, Made of Mayo in Ballinrobe Racecourse.

At 6pm, Michael McLoughlin will host a three-hour special live music show, from our studio one. Michael will be joined by Pat and Anthony Staunton, Paul Greenan, Branco O’Keeffe and many other local musicians. The show will be broadcast from 6pm right through to 9pm.
Later that night, the first Sports Roadshow of 2018 will take place in the Claremorris GAA Clubhouse.
This weekend the Claremorris GAA Club are honouring the county championship teams of 1964-65. At 6pm Claremorris will play Salthill-Knocknacarra for the Seán McManamon Cup.
