If people in the Shannonside Northern Sound region are talking about it then Joe Finnegan is talking about it. And more often than not, people are talking about The Joe Finnegan Show!

Each weekday morning for close to 30 years Joe Finnegan has delved into, discussed and debated the issues that matter most to the people of counties Longford, Leitrim, Roscommon, Cavan and Monaghan and surrounding areas.

For Joe it’s all about listeners, they set the agenda.  It’s their experiences, stories and opinions that matter and no subject is out of bounds!

Not only does Joe share problems, he and his team help solve them too.  The programme also hosts regular guests offering free advice to listeners on general health, parenting, nutrition, cooking, legal issues and dental health.

During The Joe Finnegan Show you are listening to local people and local issues at their very best and sometimes worst.  You are guaranteed to be informed, angered, irritated and maybe even shocked but always entertained.

It’s the flagship show on Shannonside Northern Sound, on air weekdays from 9am to 11am. Listeners can contact the show 24/7 on 0818 227 100 or by email to [email protected] or [email protected]
