A 13-HOUR live broadcast of television and radio programmes from and about the town is planned for St Patrick’s Day in Ennis and it will go out to a worldwide audience.
Live programmes start at 8am and all programmes broadcast will be available exclusively across the world on smart phones and tablets via the Ennis App or from the net at www.ennisapp.ie
Television pictures are being taken by TV stations in The US, France and Germany and audio feeds are being supplied to radio stations who want to share in the festivities live from Ennis.
Among those hosting programmes will be Ennis man, singer/songwriter, Mike Hanrahan, formerly of StocktonsWing; musician and raconteur, Pat Costello; internationally known journalist, columnist and spinner of great yarns, Cormac MacConnell; and well known Ennis-based freelance broadcaster, Ger Sweeney.
Supported by Ennis Town Council, Ennis Chamber of Commerce and Promote Ennis, the initiative is partnering with a cross section of County Clare’s globally known attractions such as The Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Folk Park and the Burren Smokehouse in Lisdoonvarna, as well as Active Ennis. These will be highlighted and profiled in the course of the day’s programmes.
Full details of St Patrick’s Day Live on the Ennis App are available on the Ennis App and at www.ennisapp.ie.
