Documentaries on Near FM


Tune in to Near FM all next week Jan 18th– 22nd at 12.30pm for a week of radio documentaries produced by the Broadcasting & Journalism Degree students of Colaiste Dhulaigh in conjunction with Near FM.

These documentaries which are made by Colaiste Dhulaigh students for a degree certified by the University of Wolverhampton cover a wide range of topics with Northside Dublin being the common theme.

On Monday we visit Howth to find out about the life of the fishermen. Tuesday finds us at the home of Irish football as we explore Bohemians success off the pitch.  The gender quota in the upcoming election grabs our attention on Wednesday before we see how the Irish language is faring in North County Dublin on Thursday.
