A very popular programme Around The Fireside on C103 Radio on Monday, May 30, aired for the final time after 32 years. Jimmy Reidy was the presenter and it started in Freemount Heritage Centre in 1990. People came from all parts of Ireland to participate in the very popular pre-recorded programme including our own Ardagh/Carrigkerry  parish. It was a mix of chat about many subjects with music and song  and it was broadcast from 9-50 to 11pm. When Covid arrived Jimmy picked past programmes from the archives which was much appreciated during the lockdown. The programme will be sadly missed by its huge listenership, especially the elderly and those living alone around the rural locality. Thanks to Jimmy, Peggy and his team for the lovely entertainment, sadly the door closes on another popular radio programme. Jimmy also presented a weekly Saturday show from 12 noon to 2pm which also ended due to the pandemic and never returned.
