CRY104fm presents “Kitchens for Living in…..the Story of Murray Kitchens”.

MURRAY KITCHENS logos poster new photo

CRY104fm presents “Kitchens for Living in…..the Story of Murray Kitchens”.

CRY104fm along with the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland are delighted to present a 3 part documentary on one of Youghal towns biggest employers in the past – Murray Kitchens.

The story has never been told before, as no written history of the company exists anywhere else.   This documentary aims to tell the story of the company through the decades by the people who worked there.

From it’s humble beginnings in Store Street where it began by making lavatory seats, furniture and one armed bandits, to when it was producing quality surrounds for radios and TV’s for companies such as PYE, HMV and Pilot.

The company was always ahead of the curve, and throughout its history saw what was coming down the line and diversified to meet demand.

The company went on to make quality kitchens in the 1970’s and at one point nearly every home in Munster had a Murray Kitchen in their house.

It was one of Youghals most prominent companies from the 1940’s to the 1980’s and along with the textile manufacturing industries in the town, ensured Youghal was much more than just a busy port and centre for tourism.

We speak to the people who worked there – in a time when there was almost 100% employment in the area, an idea that is almost unheard of today.

The documentary speaks about skills with machines that are now almost obsolete and tracks the company until it closed it’s doors in the early 1990’s

Tune in on Tuesday 24th/ Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th of May to hear what life was like for the workers in John Murray and Sons…later Murray Kitchens.

Produced and presented by Orla Riordan, and Edited by Sean healy….It’s not to be missed….

‘Leading The Field’ – a six part series looking at the strong racing culture in the East Cork/West Waterford area.

‘Leading The Field’ – a six part series looking at the strong racing culture in the East Cork/West Waterford area.

It will explore the locals’ love affair with the sport of horse racing, highlighting the various successes that the local jockeys, trainers and breeders have had on a local, national and international level. Many well-known personalities such as Davy Russell, Denis O’Regan, Frank Motherway, Jimmy Mangan and Henry De Bromhead are featured in the CRY104fm documentary, which will examine how the area is now rivaling Kildare for the ‘Home Of Racing’ title. 

The documentary, made in association with the BAI, is produced and presented by Jordan McCarthy and edited by Tom Maher. Episode One will air on Sunday 22nd May at 6.30pm – and a new episode will be broadcast then every Sunday until end of June at the same time each week. 

The idea came from the 2014 Gold Cup really. Lord Windermere was bred in Killeagh, ridden by a Youghal man in Davy Russell, and the runner-up, On HIs Own, was bred in Killeagh too. Horses bred a few miles apart along the N25 in the Killeagh / Youghal area and all that separated them at the line of the biggest race of the season was a whisker – it is quite the story! Epsiode one focuses on that famous Gold Cup and the career of dual champion jockey Davy Russell.
