Bere Island Community Radio has now been operational since March 2019. We hope to continue broadcasting in 2020, and we would like to make the radio as reflective of community interests and needs as possible. We see the radio as a way to begin conversations on important matters for the island and to use it as an advocacy platform to bring these conversations to officials on issues that matter to us. We would like to invite you to a public meeting on the needs of the community and how the radio might support them, on Sunday, 13th October at 2.30pm in the Community Centre. A visual artist will capture our ideas on the day and we will find ways to bring them forward via the radio or other means. Refreshments will be provided.
Mass from St Michael’s Church, Bere Island is broadcast online every Sunday from 10am. Click here to listen.
