Claremorris Community Radio - Progress Fund

****

**UPDATE, APRIL 2019: Renewed, remodelled and re-energised! **

Claremorris Community Radio has secured a fantastic new location just around the corner, and the building work is well under way. Click the 'Gallery' tab above to see the latest progress.

The new purpose-built studios will be ideally situated in town and accessible for people of all abilities.

Your donations will now help us create the modern and comfortable radio studio that the Claremorris community needs and deserves.

Claremorris Community Radio strives to be at the heart of the community of southeast Mayo. After more than a decade in existence, the station is stepping up its ambitions to serve the various communities of Claremorris and reflect the diversity and vibrancy of the area.

To help build the station's capacity to achieve these aims, CCR is launching a Progress Fund to raise €6,000 for the station. Proceeds from this fund will go to the following areas:

1. Upgrading equipment: repair and purchase of studio equipment to improve sound quality. Installation of a "live lounge" to broadcast live music on air and enable young bands and artists to record demos. 

2. External communications: upgrade website and other online platforms, and conduct community consultation surveys.

3. Training: CCR offers QQI (previously Fetac) accredited qualifications. These are particularly useful to those seeking employment, but also to those who just want to learn something new. 

4. Community outreach: facilities to enable CCR to cover an increased number of events run by other community groups in the area.

5. Diaspora outreach: Claremorris is a small town but a big community. The Progress Fund wants to help CCR improve online output and podcasting so that the far flung children of Claremorris can hear the sounds of home.

6. General capacity building: the basic running costs of a radio station increase each year. These range from rent, light and heat to insurance and other statutory expenses. 

Claremorris Community Radio has been doing great work for more than ten years. Help it do even better as it faces into the next decade.

Photos? On Radio?

Yes, it’s the truth! Claremorris Community Radio and Claremorris Camera Club have dared to put together a programme of photos and poems for Poetry Day Ireland 2019.

Presenters Anni Wilton-Jones, of the At The Crossroads arts programme, and Ed Coulson have selected eight photographs from the Camera Club’s recent display. For each photo, they have chosen the poem that they feel fits with the truth or the dare (i.e. challenge) of the picture.

You will hear each photographer talking about their photograph and the presenters reading the chosen poem and discussing their selection of both the photo and the poem. Which will be a truth and which a dare? Listen in and find out.

Truth or Dare! Photos and Poems will be aired on Poetry Day Ireland, Thursday, 2 May 2019, at 8.00 pm and repeated on Sunday, 5 May 2019, at 5.00 pm

You can listen locally on 94.6 FM or listen live through the Claremorris Community Radio website at www.ccr946.ie.

The photographs will also be on display in the Claremorris Community Radio studios during the week before and the week after Poetry Day Ireland.

Listening to Claremorris Community Radio in the cloud.

Status updated: 19th Apr, 2019

Paddy Connolly is 99 years old. He was a builder from a young age, and stayed in the trade all his life:

"I had three houses built when I was 20," he says. "I never was a day idle in my life."

In this chat with Bridie Sheeran, Paddy also reminisces about travelling shops, the diet of his youth, cutting turf and hay, superstitions around calving time, mourning traditions, arranged marriages, and the wonderful tilly lamp.

Enjoy!
