This is Mike Donovan on Kerry Local Radio from August 17th 1981. This recording was made by the touring DX Archive party, who failed to locate the station so unfortunately there’s no photos. You can listen to the recording; and below there’s a link to the DX Archive account of that part of their tour.
As you’re listening you are invited to visit the Kerry Local Radio station page and if you can add to the history (factually or anecdotally) or if there’s anything else you can contribute such as photos or recordings, please get in touch.
