YOUR LOCAL AREA: Have you noticed that you’re observing more about your local area at the moment? Bird song, wildflowers, an old gate or a ruin? Kilkenny County Council and KCLR are inviting you to record a 2-minute piece about observations and stories of the ordinary and remarkable heritage which you see in your area on your daily 5km walks. Simply use your phone to record yourself as you tell a story about your area and email it to kclrlive@kclr96fm.com or whatsapp it to 083-3069696. The series will run each weekday morning on KCLR Live for the month of May and is a joint initiative of the Heritage Office of Kilkenny County Council and KCLR and funded by Creative Ireland.
