Midwest Radio has announced this evening that three masses each week will be broadcast on the station for the foreseeable future.
Management at the station said they were reacting to a huge number of requests from listeners to increase religious broadcasts in the wake of the corona virus epidemic.
As well as the weekly Sunday morning broadcast of Mass Midwest Radio will also broadcast a 10 o’clock morning mass each Wednesday and Friday commencing this Friday morning.
Station Manager Tommy Marren said this evening that at a time when the general public were feeling anxious and vulnerable it was timely for the station to introduce a number of masses as part of the weekday schedule.
The masses on Wednesday and Friday morning will be broadcast live from St. Patrick’s Chuch, Ballyhaunis and the celebrant will be Fr. Stephen Farragher.
