IT won the major Prix Europa in October and this time it's going to New York.
Francisco, which was made by Ocean FM and Leitrim's Benbo Productions, is vying for Gold at the radio awards in New York next month.
Tim Collins, CEO of Ocean Fm said that he was delighted for the recognition not only nationally but internationally.
He said: "The achievement in winning the Prix Europa last October for radio drama - the first ever such achievement by a local radio station in Europe - was overwhelming, but being shortlisted as a finalist in the prestigious New York Festival Awards is equally so."
Francisco was the work of Donal O' Kelly and his team who spent years planning its production.
Tim added: "From our own point of view, I think it clearly shows again the high standard of programming we strive for at Ocean FM."
