Thank you to our team of Community Radio Broadcasters.

During each show from 17th to 23rd May, as our way of celebrating National Volunteer Week 2021, presenters will be contacting a station volunteer for a 3 to 4 minute chat about what they like about volunteering at the station.

How did you hear about Dundalk FM in the first place?
Do you remember the first time that you came into the station – what was your impression and who did you meet?
Did you do one of our training courses – and who else was on it at the time?
What was the first radio show that you presented?
Have you produced any others?
Are there any other production skills you would like to learn?
What do your friends and family think of you being on Dundalk’s Community Radio Station?

Thank You NVW21

The team rotates each week and this week’s presenters were Gerry Campbell, David Larkin and John Hennessy. Pat Byrne was the Sound Desk Operator and the Sound Engineer was Alan Byrne with Padraig Quigley back in the studio.

The reason for the OB was to promote the launch of Dundalk’s Positive Mental Health Week Annual Art Exhibition and a play by Quintessence Theatre Groups entitled ‘Cracks’.

Derek Pepper, Regional Development Officer for the North East Region Shine organised the launch event and was a guest on the show.

Blackrock Fix It Factory

Blackrock Fix It 2015

Blackrock Tidy Towns in association with the Louth County Council organised a Fix It Factory at the Community Centre on Saturday 21st March 2015.

As Larry Magnier describes in this interview with Padraig Quigley, the idea is to get people to think about recycling or ‘upcycling’ as he describes  it.

There were experts on hand to have a look at  furniture, musical instruments electronic and small electrical equipment, bicycles, jewellery, clothing and shoes as can be seen in our collage.

Bridgestone and McManus Tyres were also there to check your tyres and give you a written report.

There was free tea and coffee and fun activities for the children.
