Kerry is a feeling that awakens your senses and emotions. What are the sounds associated with the county? Cluas Chiarrai is something very special that has not been done on radio in Kerry or in Ireland. Our listener’s sounds of Kerry are recorded in 3D. To feel and hear the ear of the Kingdom in glorious 3D you must wear good quality headphones.

Next we heard from Brigid o Connor who runs a Bed and breakfast on a sheep farm in Gleann na nGealt near the Dingle Peninsula. You will hear the 3D sounds as she tended to her flock of sheep, become acquainted with her chickens as she collects the days freshly laid eggs, and hear her experience preparing food for her guests.

Cluas Chiarrai was a joint production of the students of the Radio Broadcast and Digital Journalism Traineeship 2018-2019

It won an IMRO Gold Radio Award for Short Feature, and an IMRO Bronze Radio Award for Digital & Social Innovation
