The Community Matters Series

The Community Matters Series on Galway Bay FM is a vital platform for fostering community engagement and highlighting the diverse array of activities, events, and issues within communities around  Galway City and County.  The Galway Talks team broadcasts every two weeks from locations at the heartbeat of each community, creating a dynamic and interactive experience for listeners.

The series aims to connect our listeners to the people in each community through interviews with local leaders, community organisers, and residents who contribute to the social fabric of their own communities. From showcasing cultural events to discussing important matters, it also focuses on the talent, the humour and the fun each community thrives on.

Furthermore, the program serves as a forum for discussing issues that impact each community directly. Whether it’s addressing local concerns, promoting community initiatives, or inviting listeners to share their thoughts, “Community Matters OB” actively involves our listeners, making them active participants in the dialogue that shapes our community.

The Community Matters series amplifies local voices, celebrating achievements, and addressing challenges, the program strengthens the bonds that tie individuals together, making it an indispensable part of Galway community life.

The Community Matters Series is brought to you by Galway Bay FM and is funded by Coimisiún na Meán.
