Return to Rathmines

Many years ago, on leaving school in the early 80s, I was interested in Journalism as a potential career. The only college offering a course in Dublin at the time was in Rathmines, but the applicants that year greatly outstripped the places on the course, and I didn’t get in. I forgot about journalism for a while as I got involved in the world of computers, until fate, and Radio Caroline, intervened.

I had almost forgotten this when I got a call this week from a friend of a friend who teaches one of the media courses there, asking if I would like to come in and be interviewed on the college radio station, which is running on 97.3FM until Friday 24th April.

It was really enjoyable visiting the college, and finally getting to play a part in one of their media courses, 25 years late, but better than never!

Listening to the station on the way over, I was impressed with the effort that had been put into the news and speech programmes, and the variety of guests who were participating.

Many Thanks to Jessica and Robert for a great afternoon.
