SLIGO now has its own half-hour weekly TV programme.
It follows the launch of Ireland's first international channel, IrishTV.
Sligo County Matters will air every Tuesday at 6.30pm.
It will be presented by Claire Ronan, from Rosses Point.
It can be seen across Ireland, the UK, and Europe on Sky Channel 191, Freesat 400, Eircom's eVision, free-to-air boxes.
It may also be viewed online at Irishtv.ie and Irishtv.com and in the US on the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).
Broadcasting 24 hours a day, IrishTV will feature 50 unique home-produced programmes a week.
It will include original content each night from 6-12pm.
Each county in Ireland will have its own dedicated show.
Claire Ronan said: "The theme of the County Matters shows is simple.
"Irish life is unique, with its own cultures, traditions and events.
"At the heart of these events are people, and wherever people gather, we'll be there.
"Our team is travelling the city and county covering events and reporting on the essence of Sligo life for people at home and the Irish community abroad.
"We can be contacted on Sligo@irishtv.ie about your upcoming events."
Claire is no stranger to our TV screens.
She is a regular news reviewer on RTE's Morning Show and TV3's Ireland AM. She is also the host of the hugely popular consumer show on Ocean FM.
