Welcome to the Irish Radio Canada Website. We are proud to share our Internet Radio Station. In 2005 we commenced On-Air broadcasting with CHIN 97.9FM producing and presenting The Gaelic Hour as a weekly show. in Sept 2016 we launched this new format. You can now enjoy a selection of music every day and we will be able to expand on the number of hours of interviews, as time goes on. I would like to encourage you to submit your music selection and hopefully I can find what you like in my library. The Archives section of the site will continue to provide access to the Gaelic Hour shows since 2006. Twitter, Facebook page and group will become more relevant in communicating and I hope to increase the use of Instagram as time goes on. If you have some suggestions, please visit the contact page and send on your ideas. The 11 years on air have been fun, but the effort in raising the large sum required to buy the time has become more onerous and the online station offers the opportunity to increase content and reduce costs. You can listen to the station using a variety of tools. The player on this page may be the simplest. The links below provide additional choices of players. Also, you can use your Smart Speaker to ask Alexa or Google for "Irish Radio Canada from TuneIn" I hope you enjoy and continue to listen.

John reached out to Claudia Carroll for the rights to stage The Secrets of Primrose Square in Ottawa, resulting in a theatre world premiere of the paly. It was previously performed during COVID in an online setting.
Robin Guy plays the part of Susan and we hear her speak and extract from the play.
The play runs from May 26-June 11, 2022 at The Gladstone.
Claudia Carroll, Actor, Author and Playwrite.
Born in Dublin where she still lives, Claudia Carroll was educated in University College Dublin, the College of Music in Dublin and of the Gaiety School of Acting. She plays the character of Nicola Prendergast on the Irish TV soap Fair City appearing in the role for fourteen years. While she was working Carroll was also writing her first novel in her dressing room. That book was published in 2004. Eventually she left the show in 2007 and focused on her writing although she has made guest appearances of her character.
At number eighteen, there’s Susan, who spends her nights standing out on the street in pitch darkness outside an eighteen-year-old boy’s home, staring, just staring up at his bedroom window. She’s no deranged stalker though. She’s just an ordinary woman dealing with the unimaginable the only way she knows how.
Then there’s her daughter Melissa, fifteen years of age and desperately trying to keep up some semblance of normality at home. But with her mother acting like a crazy lady and the bitchiness of the bullies in school, what chance has she?
‘I’ve got news,’ she tells her son Jason and his awful wife, over a family dinner. ‘Big news.’
She’s all excited and hopes they’ll be happy for her.
They’re not though.
Jayne drops the bombshell and the ensuing row can be heard from the far side of the Square.
But she holds firm.
Because you’re never too old to start really living, now are you?
In 2014. Gallery of Photography Ireland initiated the Photo Album of the Irish project to record and celebrate the ordinary and extraordinary histories of people with Irish heritage reflected in family photograph albums. The Canadian iteration of the project reflects on the diverse and varied experience of Canada’s Irish diaspora, as seen through their own family albums. The exhibition seeks to uncover the many roles that photography has played in reflecting our past and recording our present.
The Photo Album of the Irish: Canada edition reflects the deep, enduring connections between Ireland and Canada. This exhibition includes images from the 1860s right up to the present, giving an authentic view of diverse Irish emigrant experiences across Canada. Collectively, the photographs reveal the stories people chose to remember and celebrate in their own lives.
This exhibition display presents a small selection of family photographs contributed to the project. The evolving archive is available to view at www.photoalbumoftheirish.com.
The Photo Album of the Irish: Canada is supported by the Government of Ireland’s Emigrant Support Programme; The Embassy of Ireland, Ottawa; and the Consulate General of Ireland, Vancouver. It is organised in partnership with the Ireland Park Foundation, The Eamonn O’Loghlin Irish Canadian Immigration Centre and the Irish Women’s Network, BC.
