Broadcasting from the Clayton Crown

The station’s Munster magazine programme, An Saol ó Dheas, will be broadcasting from the Clayton Crown in Cricklewood on 17th and 18th December, interviewing Irish emigrants who have made their lives in London.

On Thursday 12.10 pm, the show will feature people who left Ireland in the 50s, 60s and 70s, and are now well-established in London.

We’ll hear about their early years, the lives they have built for themselves there, and their plans for the Christmas season.

On Friday , at the same time, presenter Helen Ní Shé will be speaking to younger emigrants who have arrived in London since the Celtic Tiger deserted the Irish shores about their experiences there.

The programmes will also feature live music and song.

The programme team previously visited London 2 years, and broadcast several programmes with Irish people living in Edgware, Dollis Hill, Kilburn, Romford, Hayes, Ealing, Barnet, Luton, Peckham, Shoreditch and Pimlico.

You can tune in to RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta live on fm, or online at www.rte.ie/rnag and on the RTÉ Radio Player.
