In 1977 during Roscrea Holiday week the RTE outside broadcast unit came and set up on Barrack Hill for the week . The programmes were run by local people and they interviewed many people of the town. Here are some of those interviews. As these were recorded on cassette tapes from the radio the sound quality in parts may not be great and you may need to increase the volume on your device.
