After the Fact is back! Tonight!

August 9, 2013 in Quiz Show

atf_robot_logoAfter the Fact, the quiz show I host on Claremorris Community Radio, is all set to return for its third series.

This return to the airwaves is taking place in the unusual time slot* of 8pm tonight (Friday) as it is part of the 2013 CCR Broadcastathon, a fundraiser in which volunteers broadcast continuously for 48 hours to help pay the station’s bills.

The Broadcastathon kicks off at 5pm this evening (I’m also one of the hosts of that show, as it happens!) with ATF then fourth on the running order. Last year’s captains, Lorraine Murphy and Andrew Newman, are both returning for another series. Tonight they will be joined by two team-mates with a heap of ATF experience, Gordon Campbell and Anne McLoughlin. The topic for this special episode will be the number one.

You can listen in online via or watch the show (!) on

* Well, it’s not Thursdays at 7pm. There’s nothing otherwise unusual about it…

Long-distance quizzing

December 27, 2012 in Quiz Show

SkypeAs some of you may know, I host a quiz show on a local radio station, Claremorris Community Radio.  It’s called After the Fact and it’s broadcast (“live”, as Bill O’Herlihy would undoubtedly say) on Thursday evenings at 7pm.

This week’s show will be a technological step into the unknown.  You see, one of our regular captains, Lorraine, has decamped to her native Cork for the holidays.

Not to be put off, we shall be coming over all Eurovision Song Contest in the 1980s and continuing the show using the wonders of modern telephony!  Or internet telephony, to be precise.  That’s right, this week’s After the Fact will be facilitated by Skype!

It will also be something of a family and inter-city affair as Lorraine and her brother will go up against Andrew and his father.  You can listen in as the fireworks fly on tonight at 7pm on or

The luck of the draw?

October 5, 2012 in Quiz Show

My radio show, After the Fact, is now six episodes into its second season on Claremorris Community Radio.

Throughout the whole of the first series, which ran to 28 episodes, we only had one draw (or ‘tie’, if you’re American).

Who knows what’s happened since but, at this early stage, one third of season two has finished with level scores.  Are the questions harder – or easier? Have the contestants gotten smarter – or dumber? Or is it all down to luck?

If you don’t have an answer for those questions yet, why not listen to last night’s show, Europe, via the widget below?! Yes, I guess I am giving away the ending but it’s the journey that’s fun!

Finally, if you’d prefer, you can subscribe to the show via iTunes.
