In this the fourth episode of One of Our Own, writer Catherine Foley speaks to Clodagh Walsh.
Clodagh, a broadcast journalist with RTE for over 20 years, recalls her start with WLR back when she was still in school, her theatrical links with the arts community in the city where she grew up, and her return to her roots.
Her chat with Catherine is part of a line up of ten Waterford natives, all inspirational and successful figures, who form part of this fascinating series. The episodes air Tuesday evenings on WLR at 6.30pm, until March 15th.
This series is produced and edited by RoseAnn Foley, Catherine's sister, and it was made with funding from the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland with the Television Licence Fee.
RoseAnn says her aim was to shed light on the idea of what makes a true Waterford person. “They are all fascinating people,” she says. “I find their stories truly inspirational. I loved working on this series. And there’s a lovely vibe going through the series as Catherine and myself are old friends with a number of the guests. And then we met some of the others and we felt we had known them all along. It was a really enjoyable project.”
