Capital Irish broadcasting every Sunday at noon
Capital Irish team has been broadcasting on Wellington Access Radio since 2003. The show was conceived by Limerick man Tim Collins, who was working in Wellington and saw the need for an Irish radio programme.
Tim later brought Margaret Aitken on board and she became the senior presenter and promoter up until 2012. Margaret brought charm and life to Capital Irish and managed to acquire a great team of Irish people from various parts of Ireland, many of whom are still presenting like Daniel MCCaffrey and Roy McGuinness.
The programme includes Irish news, local events and activities with an Irish flavour as well as interviews and live music from visiting Irish musicians. It also includes book and movie reviews and on occasion some political views/reviews. Capital Irish has interviewed many Irish Celebrities over the years the most prestigious being the former Irish President Mary McAleese.
Our presenters come from all walks of life and each generation is represented!
Present team 2013 includes
Daniel McCaffery (Co. Fermanagh), Roy McGuinness (Co. Dublin), Jim Friel (Co. Mayo), Alice Paul (Co. Monaghan), Denise McCarthy (Co. Kerry), Mariam Grealis (Co. Mayo), Daniel Cahill (Co. Laois), Emma Sweeney (Co. Westmeath), and Gerry Paul (Dublin/NZ).
