About this Item

Dr T.J. Kiernan, Director of Radio 1935-40 succeeded Séamus Clandillon as Director of Broadcasting. He was transferred from the Department of External Affairs when an interview board failed to agree an appointment. Kiernan set up local programme committees nationwide and developed talks and drama. During his time the poet W.B. Yeats was interviewed for radio. Sadly this recording does not survive.
