Today Wednesday 9th of March South East Radio joined together with the Wexford People Newspaper Group to encourage the people of Co. Wexford to swap our beloved purple and gold for the blue and yellow of Ukraine in a show of support.
South East Radio is the voice of Co. Wexford and over the past 33 years our news and programming teams have covered the highs and the lows but the horrific stories and scenes we are seeing from Ukraine for the past two weeks have been heart-breaking. Our listeners have been asking us to do something to highlight the worsening situation.
South East Radio is uniting with our colleagues in the Wexford People Newspaper Group to offer our support to those affected in Ukraine. Every day, we proudly fly the purple and gold of County Wexford. This week, we are asking you, in solidarity with the Ukrainian people, to fly the blue and yellow of Ukraine. South East Radio is now illuminating its studios in the Ukrainian colours.
South East Radio and the Wexford People Newspaper Group are working together to share with you the latest updates on the Ukrainian crisis as well as the stories and journeys of those escaping the conflict to seek refuge.
Our native Irish phrase says “Ní neart go cur le chéile” – There is no strength without unity. We are now appealing to you to unite and help the people of Ukraine in any way you can.
