LISTEN BACK: The Wild Atlantic Way Audio Tour – as heard on Radio

13 August 2014

  • The Wild Atlantic Way is a 2,500km tourist driving route marketed by Failte Ireland
  • Some have called it ‘Ireland’s Route 66’
  • It uses existing roads on the Western Seaboard of Ireland, from Kinsale to Donegal
  • Listen back to this 5 part audio tour

In July/August 2014 Cork based Journalist David O’Sullivan travelled the Cork section of the Wild Atlantic Way. For one week each day he filed 5-10 minute audio-rich report that aired on Ireland’s largest local radio operation. The segments aired on two flagship morning shows on Cork’s 96FM on the ‘Opinion Line’, and C103 Cork’s ‘Cork Today’ programme.

Each segment took many hours to create, between research, travelling, recording, and editing.

There was a great reaction to the pieces, with local residents, businesspeople and politicians saying it was great to hear the gems of their area featured.
