Raidió Corca Baiscinn goes rambling


RCB radio will be presenting an original and distinctive series of radio broadcasts called Rambling Corca Baiscinn from Monday April 10th.

This 6 part series of programs will re-create the rambling house of our near past. 6 locations have been selected from across West Clare to host evenings of song, music and story connected to the local area. Each program has been carefully researched to source music, story, history and a diversity of contributors to celebrate their Place.

The programs are pre-recorded and will be broadcast on Mondays after the 1 o’clock news. Each program is about 45 minutes in duration.

Its aim is to rekindle a spirit of community and to share collective identity, drawing its inspiration from the Rambling House and ‘cuaird’ traditions.

Rambling Corca Baiscinn will bring together friends, families and neighbours in a celebration of Place and community.

You can find the station in the south west area of Clare on 92.5 or 94.8 FM or alternately, you can listen live online at

All you have to do is press the listen live button on the website. The Tune In app can also be used on your phone, tablet or laptop to listen in to the station.
