TO COMMEMORATE the 22nd anniversary of the infamous 9/11 attacks, Clare FM have broadcast a special documentary.
‘Concrete Jungle’ offered first-hand accounts of Clare natives and personnel with ties to the county as they recount the harrowing events that unfolded on that dark day. The documentary aims to pay tribute to the lives lost and showcase the resilience of the human spirit amidst adversity.
Broadcast on Monday morning at 11am on Clare FM and now available on all podcast platforms, the documentary promises to provide a poignant and insightful perspective on how the events of 9/11 touched the lives of those who call Co Clare their home.
Clare FM’s Programme Director and producer of ‘Concrete Jungle’ Padraic Flaherty said,
“The impact of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center towers in New York was felt by all. Among those affected were friends and family from Clare, who either witnessed the events as they unfolded or were involved in the rescue operations that followed. In this documentary, we seek to shed light on their perspectives and experiences during this traumatic time”.
He added, “This documentary will immerse you into events that happened on that dark day from a Clare perspective”.
Earlier this year, Clare FM received a New York Radio Award for their documentary ‘Falsely Accused’ and also received a nomination for Laura Brennan’s documentary, both of which were produced by Galway native Flaherty.
