Dundalk FM Presenters can enter the Craol Achievement Awards 2017

,Craol achievement awards header 2017
The 2017 CRAOL achievements awards application process is now open. In 2016 Jacinata Matthews and Tracey Hanby were winners for their programmes The Creative Flow and 100% Irish. The purpose of the CRAOL Achievement Awards is to give community radio stations the opportunity to rise to the challenge of being the best community radio station they can be. The awards give stations an opportunity to showcase their achievements and to be acknowledged by the CRAOL network of Community Radio Stations.
This type of Award will enable us to highlight such endorsements in grant applications, in local publicity etc.
