The following is outline of the programme on a four week cycle:

  • On the first Saturday in the month Joe McGill talks with a panel of politicians
    on the topics of the day … on a four month cycle that covers
    the four mayors of Kerry, the three north Kerry TDs, the south
    Kerry TDs and the three Munster MEPs – all in studio
  • The second Saturday is on the life and times or issues centred
    around one person … one person in studio and a great number of others
    on the telephone
  • On the third Saturday the theme is ‘self help’ – a community, a
    voluntary group, a business etc etc … speaking about things they have
    done to help themselves.
  • The last Saturday of the month Frank Lewis goes for a walk.  This could be
    around a town … in a garden … along a stretch of coastline or along a range of mountains.  Frank picks eight stopping points and records a 10 minute piece at each stop with four people from different disciplines

The focus is on telling stories.  It could be a geologist, botanist, zoologist, historian or a folklorist doing the talking!  The programme could include music, song or poetry connected to the place or the theme of the programme.

The Saturday Supplement is sponsored by Fitzpatrick’s The Market House Cahersiveen
