International Day of Peace 2012

Peace Day: Individuals Celebrating Peace

This year, the International Day of Peace 2012 is on Friday September 21st. The International Day of Peace, a.k.a. "Peace Day" provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date.
In 2002 the General Assembly officially declared September 21st as the permanent date for the International Day of Peace.

Special activities and celebrations will take place all across the world over the 2012 Peace Day Weekend, including festivals, concerts, a global Peace Wave with moments of silence at noon in every time zone, and much more. Whether it's through music, sports, dance or art, Peace Day is about spreading peace your way. Whatever action you take to mark this day is up to you.

Here at Claremorris Community Radio, we will be celebrating Peace Day by broadcasting a very special Peace Day programme on Friday September 21st at 5pm. 

Tune in to 94.6fm or listen online at to help celebrate this annual  event!

Fundraising radio and TV 'Broadcastathon' 2012

Claremorris Community Radio 94.6fm to host fund-raising radio and TV 'Broadcastathon' 
Volunteers to broadcast live for 48 hours continuously this August

Claremorris Community Radio volunteers will this month embark in a 48-hour fund-raising radio and TV broadcasting marathon to raise some much needed funds for the station.

A not-for-profit organisation, Claremorris Community Radio is owned and managed by the local community around Claremorris and will broadcast live for 48-hours non-stop from 5pm on Friday 31 August to 5pm on Sunday 2 September.

This year's Broadcastathon promises a jam-packed weekend of entertainment, live music, chat and information, with the entire broadcast streamed live on the radio station's TV website -

Listeners can not only tune into the event locally on 94.6fm but listeners around the world can also tune into the weekend's activities online via the station's website

On air since 2006, Claremorris Community Radio is a not-for-profit organization which is owned and managed by the local community and is one of 20 fully-licensed community stations around Ireland.

The station relies on donations, fundraising and support from local businesses to support it's services and hopes that the community will support their local community station during this event by either donating online this August or sponsoring the volunteers taking part.

Local businesses have been very generous in supporting the station in the past and it is hoped that they will once again show their support by availing of the station's special advertising and sponsorship rates for the event.

More information about the event and about how you can support your local community station can be obtained by calling the station on 094 9373737 or by emailing
