Pat MacAulliffe, Set Dancing & the Kerry Drama Festival

Just a quick response to some of the comments posted. Regarding Live Streaming, I think the main issue preventing West Limerick 102FM from going live on the internet is to do with copyright law relating to music, which would make the whole exercise prohibitive to do. There are hopes, however, to post up some of the talk programmes each week, editing out the music if necessary. Watch this space for future developments.
As regards the parade in Abbeyfeale, I don't think there should be any trouble barring the Orange Order making a surprise appearance (strange things have happened in the town, but I think that would be just a little too surreal) Who knows, maybe the riots in Dublin will spark off dissaffected youth in Abbeyfeale or other West Limerick towns. Or maybe not. At the moment, the main worry for locals involved in the parade will be to come up with imaginative ideas to match the superb street theatre group, Mendana, from Knocknagoshel. They really stood out in what was an excellent parade last year.
Anyway, time to get off the soapbox and on to this weeks show, which will be featuring

-An interview with Sean Lynch, MA, who recently gave a lecture in Listowel Library on the legendary Listowel plasterer/decorator/artist, Pat MacCaullife, whose work still graces buildings in Listowel and Abbeyfeale
-An interview with Ann Curtin of the West Limerick Set Dancing Club, who this weekend will be holding their 14th Annual Workshop in Rathkeale House Hotel
-Feedback from the Ardagh Drama group's production of 'The Field'
-Interview with Jerome Stack who will be talking about the upcoming Kerry Drama Festival

We also may be featuring feedback from the various workshops that took place in the Vocational School, Abbeyfeale last week. So make sure to tune in to éagsúil this Friday evening at 6.00, and if you miss anything, there's a repeat show for early risers on Saturday morning at 8.00.
