The North Cork Radio Group moves forward with more activations!

Sunday 14-October, 11AM (UTC+1), the NCRG will be activating Cork City Goal (Jail)
http://www.corkcitygaol.com/

The new Cork City Gaol opened in 1824 & was reported as being "the finest in 3 Kingdoms". In 1870 the west wing was remodelled into a double-sided cell wing & in 1878 under the General Prisons (Ireland) Act, the Gaol became an all-female prison which it remained until male anti-treaty supporters were incarcerated in 1922/1923. The Gaol closed in August 1923, with all remaining prisoners either released or transferred to other gaols.

At the same location and uniquely situated in the former Governor’s House, is the Radio Museum Experience incorporating the restored 6CK Radio Broadcasting Studio. In addition to an audio visual on Marconi – and particularly his Irish connections, there is a wonderful collection of artefacts, including the RTE Collection, providing a nostalgic trip back to the early days of radio.

This event is open to all (subject to entrance fee to the Heritage Center), NCRG member or not, licensed or not.
If you want to experience the atmospere of the NCRG events, come along, work our station, and join the fun!

Hope to see you there, or work you on the air!
