About the show…

KCLR Live is a fast paced two-hour talk show with live callers and in-studio guests. We are an interactive show that is listener-driven—we respond to your texts, calls, emails and letters and follow-up on air. We champion the ordinary people in Carlow-Kilkenny. We ask tough questions and challenge the authorities but we also enjoy light-hearted banter with “friends of the show”.


While the show airs weekdays from 10am to 12noon, the buzz never stops here at KCLR Live. We tweet, Facebook and talk to our listeners to source content 24/7.

Who are we…

Eimear Ní Bhraonáin on KCLR Live with “The Tullow Tank” Sean O’Brien.

Eimear Ní Bhraonáin is the presenter of KCLR Live. A former midlands and south-east correspondent for the Irish Independent, and local newspaper editor with the Voice group, she has covered many front page stories in the past ten years. In 2011, Eimear moved to Moneygall to await the arrival of US President Barack Obama. She reported on the visit of President Obama for networks across the globe as a “villager”. Eimear published “Is Féidir Linn—A Golden Ticket to Moneygall’ documenting Mr Obama’s visit with First Lady Michelle on July 4, 2011. A gaeilgeoir, Eimear is also a regular contributor to documentaries on Irish language TV and radio. She’s more used to roving the country with a notebook but since she returned to KCLR in 2013, Eimear has been enjoying the challenge of being behind the microphone in-studio.

The team…

Behind the scenes during KCLR’s round-the-clock general election coverage in 2016.

The best part of local radio is our small, hard-working team. No KCLR Live is complete without our regular news and sports updates from our team. Sinead Burke, Stephen Byrne, MaryAnn Vaughan, Paul Doyle and Kevin Regan all contribute to the programme.
