Online & On Air

Claremorris Community Radio 

Photos? On Radio? 

Yes, it’s the truth! Claremorris Community Radio and Claremorris Camera Club have dared to put together a programme of photos and poems for Poetry Day Ireland, 2019. 

Presenters Anni Wilton-Jones, of the At The Crossroads arts programme, and Ed Coulson have selected eight photographs from the Camera Club’s recent display. For each photo they have chosen the poem that they feel fits with the truth or the dare (i.e. challenge) of the picture.  

You will hear each photographer talking about their photograph and the presenters reading the chosen poem and discussing their selection of both the photo and the poem. Which will be a truth and which a dare? Listen in and find out. 

Truth or Dare! Photos and Poems will be aired on Poetry Day Ireland, Thursday, 2 May 2019, at 8pm and repeated on Sunday, 5 May 2019, at 5pm. You can listen locally on 94.6 FM or listen live through the Claremorris Community Radio website at ccr946.ie. The photographs will be on display in the Claremorris Community Radio studios during the week before and the week after Poetry Day Ireland.
