It’s easy during these lazy, hazy lockdown days to lose all track of time, and place, and even purpose…
Which makes having some words of comfort, wisdom and outside perspective all the more important.
When it comes to your local online news, besides your towering, terrific and beatific Greystones Guide, Noel Dickers and the Garden County Radio gang have long been doing their bit when it comes to local shenanigans.
And where would we all be without Kathleen Kelleher’s weekly Greystones missive, letting us all know the good, the bad and the jumble sales going on around here?
Thankfully, the choices of voices has only grown during the past few weeks, as more and more talented young journalists turn all their down time into trying to make everyone else feel up with some happy local news.
In Delgany, it’s the bould Orla Minogue [left], who has joined the fresh-out-of-the-oven Quarantine FM, and has already started finding out how local luminaries are lightening the heavy load of all this lockdown lethargy.
Ditto East Coast Radio’s award-winning jockess Jillian Godsill [right], who has teamed up with huggable producer Marlena Murphy for a series of online interviews. This happy-go-lockdown venture has seen Jill talk to the likes of Michelle Lynch Power (the woman behind the town’s Covid-19 support group), comedian Danny O’Brien, Grow It Forward’sJennifer Farrell and, hey, even the camera-shy GG.
Bottom line, we’re all in this together, and by sharing our stories, our questions and our answers, we’ll all come out of this stronger, smarter, happier and maybe even sexier.
You can check out Orla and the Quarantine FM gang right here, and keep up with Jill’s Good News Wicklow here, or over on ye olde Facebook right here.
