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.

Ballyheigue Inshore Rescue Service is a local voluntary charity providing land ` and inshore rescue service in the Ballyheigue and North Kerry area. Tim Aslett is the helmsman, training officer and the Chairperson. He will bring us through what happens from the initial call out through to a rescue. You will be immersed in the 3D sounds of the sea and the rescue.

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