The series Ar Bhruach na Sionainne was recorded on the UL campus, and can be heard each Tuesday on RTÉ RnaG at 1.30 pm.
The programmes will feature musical performances by the students, their friends and family, as well as academic staff at the university.
There will be seven programmes in the series in total, and they will be presented by Emily Greaney from Abbeyknockmoy in Co. Galway, Peadar Ó Sionnaigh from Foxford in Mayo, Róisín O’Hara from Moate in Co. Westmeath, Caoimh Laide from Listowel in Kerry, Ciarán O’Connell from Pallasgreen in Limerick, Róisín Nic an Rí from Clifden in Galway, and Liam Tierney from Portumna, Co. Galway.
This initiative was pioneered by series producer Áine Hensey, a broadcaster with RTÉ RnaG, and lecturer and musician Máire Ní Ghráda, and is designed to give students an understanding of the processes and preparation involved in media work including scripting and presenting.
Ar Bhruach na Sionainne can be heard on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta every Tuesday at 1.30 pm, starting on 4 July, and Emily Greaney will present the first show.
