Since our establishment, Claremorris Community Radio has been very successful in the annual CRAOL awards, which recognise quality in production of community radio in Ireland. Over the past 11 years, 21 locally-produced shows have received one of these accolades.
For some time now, we’ve listed our award-winning shows right here on the site. However, over the past week, we have made a determined trawl through the station’s archive, with the hope of making each of these shows available for the public.
Happily, this search has proved very fruitful and, at time of the publication of this story, we have found all but one of our CRAOL winners. You can listen back to them simply by visiting the CRAOL award winners page and clicking on the title of each show.
Congratulations are extended to Libbie Maguire, Ardeevin, Claremorris, whose name came out of the bucket first! She wins two return flights from Ireland-West Airport to Milan.
The second name drawn as Tommy Ruane, Main Street, Claremorris, and he wins a €50 hamper from The Food Store, Claremorris’s award-winning butcher, deli and coffee shop.
There were also 10 winners of a free copy of The People’s Courts, the radio station’s recently published book-and-CD. Those winners are:
Liam Newman, Claremorris
Sile Keaveney, Claremorris
Tracy Burke, Ballyhaunis
Dympna Fitzpatrick, Claremorris
Matthew Lyons, Balla
Kieran Spellman, Galway city
Yvonne Keaveney, Claremorris
Tommy Heneghan, Balbriggan
Katie McGrath, Abbeyknockmoy
Mary Legge, Ballinamore
Congratulations everyone! We’ll be in contact with you (if you included a contact no on the ticket stub) over the next day or so.
