Seán has been a great friend of the Monaghan Water Safety Area Committee for the last number of years and has helped with the promotion of Water Safety Awareness Week throughout counties Cavan and Monaghan. Sean’s weekday breakfast show ‘The Breakfast Roll’ is very popular and has extremely high listenership figures within both counties (surpassing some of the national stations in the region).  Over the past number of years Seán has thrown open the doors of the Breakfast Roll Studio to allow primary school children from Monaghan share their Water Safety tips of the day for National Water Safety Awareness Week. Seán has given the opportunity to the children to visit the studio, meet with the staff to see how the radio station works while at the same time ensuring that Water Safety is given huge promotion during Water Safety Week each year. Seán has consistently given water safety tips free primetime slots in his morning show. Seán has also organised that Water Safety Committee members can be interviewed for news items at various times throughout the year (Christmas swims, bank holidays, good weather) to ensure that listeners are water safety aware.
