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.

Claremorris native Cathal Nally (Cathal Mac An Fhaillaigh) is one half of the duo Jeykll & Jeykll, along with Meg Cronin. You may have heard Cathal playing in various groups over the years at Michael Wardes Public House.

The band is based in Cork but Cathal dropped into the Sunday Brunch studio when he was home recently and talked to host Dolores Keaveney about the band's history and line-up, and their experiences in the music business.

On Saturday, 10th August, Rushe's aquatica on Mount St finally opened its doors to the public, and Claremorris Community Radio was there to help celebrate, with a two-hour live outside broadcast.

You can listen below to some highlights from the afternoon.

Thanks to everyone who made it down on the day, and to our hosts who put on such a great party. Special thanks to Chloe Donnellan Vocalist from Tuam, who sang three beautiful songs.

Congratulations to the Rushes team on a successful opening and we wish them the best of luck for the future.

If you haven't already, it's well worth popping in to the shop at the top of Mount Street to take a look at the incredible range of fish and other beautiful creatures.

A great place to take kids - and of course every Saturday they can feed the predators!

As the Irish government starts to take action to limit climate change there are some new state policies to encourage alternatives to fossil fuels, like biogas production on farms.

Noel Gavigan is technical head at the Irish Bioenergy Association, which represents producers of energy from sources like woodchip and biogas. He told Mark Godfrey how managed forests as well as gases from agricultural slurry are all cleaner alternatives to coal and oil.
