Hi! My name is Laura Fitzgibbon. I’m from Charleville and have lived here all my life – which would be almost 24 years! I have 4 sisters who live locally, as do my parents. My son Cathal is 5 years old. I’m currently studying Applied Social Studies in Limerick and am really enjoying it. I also enjoy socialising with friends & family, reading, procrastinating on the internet, watching films and of course listening to music!
I have worked in BCR since October of 2010. I am the Office Administrator/Receptionist for the radio station & keep track of most of the office and volunteer paperwork. I deal with all of your phone and email queries and I also maintain the online Community Diary & record it for air on Saturdays and Sundays. My email is Laura@bcradio if you have any queries.
Hello my name is Anna Howard. I have been living in North Cork now for over three years. I originally come from Laois, but have lived in London for over 30 years. I returned to Ireland in 2007 My husband comes from North West Cork just outside the village of Knocknagree. I have one son. My interests are music, reading, films and theatre.
I am delighted to be involved with Ballyhoura Community Radio. I love the idea of radio for the local people. I enjoy meeting the volunteers as they come into the studio to present their various shows, I try to listen to the radio as much as I can at the weekends. I work as book-keeper/ administrator. I also present the occasional music show, and hope to get more involved as time goes by.
Hi! My name is Nessan Kavanagh and I am at the Technical Officer here at Ballyhoura Community Radio. It is my job to make sure that all the studio equipment and software is working as it should and when I have a spare minute I maintain the station website! I also work closely with our volunteers and produce several programmes including Ballyhoura View, World Beat and Local Links.
I’ve been involved with BCR since the end of 2008, initially as a volunteer, and I would encourage anybody with an interest in radio to come along to visit us and get involved! You won’t regret it. I certainly don’t!
