Young at Heart
Phoenix FM is launching a new series about the Blanchardstown Active Retirement group which plays an important role in the life of the local Dublin 15 community. Through the project, members of the club share information and stories starting from the 1970s when the small rural village of Blanchardstown and surrounding areas contained less than 3,000 people to our days when Dublin 15 became fastest growing urban area in Ireland with the population over 100,000. Through captivating stories about Dublin 15 and the activities of the group the listener will learn about local area as well as the importance of social interaction and use of modern technology by all age groups.
This Programme is broadcast on 92.5 Phoenix FM on Thursdays at 11.30, starting on the 2nd of July, podcasts are available on www.phoenixfm.ie and iTunes. The project is supported by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland under the Sound and Vision scheme.
