Coast 103/County sound/KFM Galway

Are there any jocks still involved in radio(in Galway) or otherwise from these mighty 80s pirates?

I was packed off to the Gaeltacht in 1988 .. the big Galway stations at the time were

Coast 103
Countysound

and Radio West (just about) ..

I liked Coast 103 most of all 'cos it sounded like a Dublin station to this jackeen ...

Hi Brian
yes heard Sean had moved to South Africa(that was round 15 years ago how time flies!)....I know Rory's brother Peter lives in Canada now, so maybe he moved there also....

And I know Shane now lives in LA! Found his website the other day!

Donal Mahon of KFM is now on Galway Bay fm

Jo(h)n Richards of WLS & County Sound is now on GBfm

Benen Tierney of County Sound went to Mid West but left radio some years ago

Some guys gone to the great DJ booth in the sky:

Clem Flanagan (Clem's Country) - County Sound - RIP
Guy (name escapes me) who did a 50's show on WLS and later County Sound - RIP
Tommy Kaye (famed in song by the Saw Doctors) was the breakfast jock on county Sound - RIP

Great times.... eh?
