They will give a presentation on the broadcasting possibilities of our streaming service through the Foyle Small Scale DAB. We would be delighted if the Gaels of Derry City, Dungiven, Limavady and Strabane were in attendance so that we can gauge the opinions and demand for making our broadcasting service available in those areas.”
