Photo Raidió Fáilte Academy Award 2013 Catching the LightIn ainneoin comórtais ghéir ó staisiúin raidió eile is ag Raidió Fáilte a bhí an bua sna Radio Academy Awards. Fuair stáisiún raidió Gaeilge Bhéal Feirste ardmholadh ó mholtóirí an chomórtais a dúirt “in ainneoin chómórtais ghéir ó stáisiúin iontacha eile, is ag Raidió Fáilte a bhí an bua de thairbhe uaillmhianachta agus fhorleithneacht a chlár” Anuas air sin, arsa na moltóirí, “Is pléisiúir a bhí ann a bheith ag éisteacht leis an iarrthóir seo, ba bhinn leis na cluasa iad agcuid clár. In gach aon rud a dhéanann siad tá sé le tabhairt faoi deara go bhfuil Raidió Fáilte ag cur thar maoil le paisean dá dteanga, dá lucht éisteachta agus do mheán an Raidió é féin. Oibríonn siad go crua ní amháin le teanga a chur chun cinn agus a chaomhnú ach le raidió cruthaitheach fíreannach a chur chun cinn chomh maith.”

Chuir Bainisteoir Raidió Fáilte Fergus Ó hÍr fáilte roimh an duais a rá ‘tugann an duais seo aitheantas don obair mhór mhaith a dhéanann foireann agus craoltóirí deonacha Raidió Fáilte agus ba mhaith liom mo bhuíochas a ghabháil leofa ar fad as a ndíogras. Faigheann Raidió Fáilte áischothú dearfach ó éisteoirí fud fad an domhain ach is mór an sásamh é d’fhoireann an stáisiúin aitheantas a fháil ó mhóreagraíocht ar nós an Radio Acadamy. Is é BBC Raidió Feabhail a bhain an duais annuraidh agus is mór an moladh do Raidió Fáilte, stáisiún pobail Gaeilge a bhfuil mionbhuiséad aige gur chinn na moltóirí go raibh an duais seo tuillte againn.’

Tá foireann bheag ag Raidió Fáilte agus is craoltóirí deonacha iad formhór na gcraoltóirí a dhéanann cláir ann. Bíonn an stáisiún ag craoladh 24 uair in aghaidh in lae, 7 lá na seachtaine ar 107.1FM i mórcheantar Bhéal Feirste agus ar www.raidiofailte.com ar fud an domhain. Cuireann an stáisiún traenáil raidió d’ardchaighdeán ar fáil i scileanna raidió agus craoltóireachta agus tá breis agus 20 iarthraenálaithe i ndiaidh fostaíocht a fháil i ngnéithe éagsúla na meán cumarsáide. Tá eiteas láidir for-rochtana ag an stáisiún agus bíonn daoine ón phobal Phrotastúnach, ón phobal Aontachtach agus ó phobail nua na n-inimirceach ag éisteacht agus ag craoladh ar Raidió Fáilte.

Faoi mar atá rialacha craolacháin Ofcom i láthair na huaire níl cead ag Raidió Fáilte ach a bheith ag craoladh i gceantar Bhéal Feirste. Tá cuid mhór daoine taobh amuigh de Bhéal Feirste atá ag iarraidh go mbeadh Raidió Fáilte ar fáil i gceantar s’acu féin.  Anois go bhfuil an duais seo faighte ag Raidió Fáilte táthar ag súil go mbeidh cás níos láidre ag an stáisiún le cur os comhair an rialaitheora craolacháin OFCOM le cead a fháil an seirbhís a leathnú thar limistéar tíreolaíochta níos forleithne.

Belfast’s Irish Language radio station Raidió Fáilte beats all opposition to win the Radio Academy Award for the Northern Ireland Region

Belfast’s Irish language community radio station Raidió Fáilte has won the Radio Academy Nations and Regions Awards for the Northern Ireland region. Despite stiff competition from other stations Raidió Fáilte won out, gaining high praise from the Radio Academy judges who stated that “despite stiff competition from other excellent stations, Raidió Fáilte won out through its ambition and breadth.” The judges went on to say “It was a total joy to listen to this entry and a real treat for the ears —Raidió Fáilte oozes passion for its language, its audience, and for radio itself in everything that it does. It works hard to promote and preserve not just a language, but also creative and authentic radio.”

Raidió Fáilte works with a small staff and a team of dedicated volunteers. It broadcasts 24 hours per day on 107.1fm in the Belfast region and can be heard worldwide on www.raidiofailte.com. The station provides high level training for people interested in broadcasting and more than twenty former trainees have gone on to be employment in various aspects of the media. The station also has a strong outreach ethos having people from the Protestant/Unionist community and from the new immigrant communities listening to and broadcasting on the station.

Welcoming the Radio Academy Nations and Regions Award, Raidió Fáilte Manager Fergus Ó hÍr said “This is a fitting recognition of the hard work done by the dedicated staff members and volunteers and I want to thank and congratulate them for their valiant efforts over the years. Raidió Fáilte gets very positive feedback from listeners all over the world, but it is gratifying for the work of the station to be recognised by a prestigious organisation such as thee Radio Academy”.

Raidió Fáilte’s licence  is currently restricted to allow the station to broadcast on the airwaves only in the Belfast region. Many people outside the Belfast area have been keen  to have the area of broadcast for Raidió Fáilte extended. It is hoped that this award will strengthen the case with the broadcast regulator Ofcom for Raidió Fáilte to allowed to extend its broadcasts over a wider area.

Statements from the  Radio Academy Judges

Judges sought to reward stations that demonstrated how they have consistently excelled across the year and provided essential listening for their target audience.

Northern Ireland: Raidió Fáilte 107.1fm

It was a total joy to listen to this entry and a real treat for the ears. Raidió Fáilte oozes passion for its language, its audience, and for radio itself in everything that it does. It works hard to promote and preserve not just a language, but also creative and authentic radio. It’s refreshing to know that our industry can find a place for bilingual Irish/ Polish/ French programmes! The judges found this region particularly tough to judge, but despite stiff competition from other excellent stations, Raidió Fáilte won out through its ambition and breadth.

Paul Robinson, Chief Executive Officer of The Radio Academy said: “These awards celebrate the very best in local and regional radio which is at the heart of the communities they serve providing essential information and entertainment and as well as being a vital source of new talent and training for the rest of the industry. I congratulate all the stations nominated for their excellence of achievement and deep understanding of their audiences.

Jon Kirby, Programme Controller, Real and Smooth Ltd and Chairman of the 2013 Nations and Regions Awards Judging Panel said: “The standard of entries this year was superb right across the board, and in several cases the judges debated long and hard over their final decision. Each region has a worthy winner but there were many other entries that gave those winners a real run for their money. Overall, the judges were hugely impressed with the passion, dedication and expertise displayed in each winning entry and how well each station served its target audience.
