Since first picking up a microphone in his role as a deputy showjumping judge, Tadhg has become increasingly involved in the audio broadcasting and production. As a commentator, Tadhg can be regularly heard at events across Munster and more recently at International Horse Trials including Camphire (CIC), Ballindenisk (CIC, CCI) and Bromont (CCI, Quebec, Canada).
In 2008, Tadhg worked with an innovative team to produce and provide “Millstreet MIC;” an audio information service that ran for the duration of the Horse Show. This service provides competition updates, interviews and analysis from across the Green Glens Arena. The service was recommissioned for 2010 and highlights from 2011 can be heard below!
While studying at IT Tralee, Tadhg acted as Station Manager / Chairperson of BangFM; the Student Radio station of IT Tralee. During his time, he worked with a dedicated and passionate team to produce content that appealed to both the students and staff of the Institute. Tadhg produced several music, news and current affairs programmes including the National Student Media nominated “Bang FM Education Special;” a show which featured input from across the political spectrum (Ruairi Quinn, Fergus O’ Dowd, John O’ Donoghue, David Norris, Michael Healy-Rae and more).
Tadhg was presented with the award for “Best Chairperson” by IT Tralee Societies Office and went on to lead the Radio Society to victory at the Board of Irish College Society awards (BICS) – taking home the coveted “Best Society” award.
