It was lights, cameras, action in the Three Sisters region recently when RTÉ’s popular Nationwide came to town. Nationwide presenter, Mary Kennedy, and the television crew wanted to film our unique story of three regions coming together as one, in a bid to win the European Capital of Culture 2020.
The programme will air before the end of May, and if you keep a close eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages, we’ll let you know the date – so you can tune into this extra special episode!
And while you’re keeping an eye out for that info, why not do your bit to help us win and like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter using #BitForTheBid. Remember, there are only a few short weeks until July when the European Union’s European Capital of Culture panel makes its decision.
A number of our incredible Culture Champions took time out from their busy schedules to take part in the Nationwide interviews. Kilkenny’s Tomm Moore, founder of Oscar-nominated Cartoon Saloon, was joined by Miriam Dunne, founding member of Waterford’s Spraoi International Street Arts Festival. Also interviewed and representing Wexford, was our very own Bid Team member, and lead singer of folk group Corner Boy, Mick D’Arcy.
We can’t wait to see the finished product on our screens in a few weeks’ time, and we know that you’ll show your support by tuning in to RTÉ 1, liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter and Instagram with #BitForTheBid
