We are pleased to know that we are reaching people as far away as Castleisland, Killarney and into the borders of Cork City to the South, but regretfully some of our own homes are not getting our programs.

In the coming weeks the crew will be out testing signals and adjusting the transmitters on our hills and mountains. People are asked to make them aware of their problems and every effort will be made to put things right.

Further to that the public are invited to take part in their Local TV Station. Lots of people have movie cameras now and are asked to film local happenings and submit them for transmission.
