Mayo County Matters on Irish TV
Posted in Connect on March 31, 2015.
The Transition Year students of Davitt College, Castlebar will be fighting it out among the top schools in Ireland for the AIB Build a Bank national title in the RDS in April. Their bank – Bulls Eye Bank, made it through the regional finals to secure a place in the national finals and Irish TV met with their dynamic team to find out all about their thriving business.
The show will be broadcast on Mayo County Matters on Irish TV, Sky 191, Freesat 400, eVision 191, free to air boxes and online at www.irishtv.ie on Tuesday, March 31 at 7.30pm.
“These enterprising students are so competent and mature that you would hire them on the spot if you were recruiting for your business,” said Irish TV’s Mayo County Matters presenter Toni Bourke.
“They even wrote a song which they perform themselves and which wowed the judges during the regional heat,” Ms Bourke added.
The song can be currently viewed on Irish TV’s Facebook page and shows the incredible talent and thinking outside the box attitude these students possess.
Also on this week’s show the crew visited Castlebar Tennis Club to find out all about the magnificent dome-like structure that has ensured tennis can be played at the facility 365 days a year.
“It’s fantastic to see the club make their dreams become a reality in order to ensure they remain one of the top clubs in the west of Ireland, and these are the stories that Irish TV want to tell to the world,” Ms Bourke added.
Also coming up on the show Mayo County Matters also went along to an event called Emerald Flame during Westport’s St Patrick’s week celebrations. It has been described as a modern tale with an inspiring twist and was told through the mediums of words, music and song.
Knock Shrine recently launched their new website and Gerry Glennon from MidWest Radio officiated at the ceremony. Irish TV was also there to capture the moment.
For all this and more tune in to Mayo County Matters on Irish TV every Tuesday night at 7.30pm and repeated on Thursdays at 3pm and Saturdays at 11am.
