Carrick Chamber are delighted to announce that, following contacts from them, RTE have chosen Carrick as ‘The Today Show Town of the Month’. RTE will broadcast the show on Tuesday April 21 at 4.30pm.
A film crew, with host Mary McEvoy, were in town recently where they interviewed stall holders in the Farmers’ Market in the Market Yard Centre, John Bredin in Costello Chapel and Geraldine Gray in Leitrim Design House at The Dock.
They then boarded Moonriver for a short trip and a chat with Kathleen Coleman, Gerry Faughnan, Brendan Dee and Tom Gleeson.
Despite the cold day Carrick-on-Shannon was looking its best with lots of water based activities from Rivermania and Emerald Star going on and some two wheeled sport from Seamus Gibbons at Electric Bikes.
The morning’s filming finished off in Victoria Hall Restaurant with some tasty Boxty Wraps.
The Chamber would like to thank Keith Nolan for all his work in bringing this about and to everyone who was so helpful on the day.
There are some great photos of the days filming on their Facebook Page- Chamber President Carrick On Shannon.
