The Mayo News of September 19, 1953, recorded that television was first viewed in Castlebar on the premisies of Robert Kilkelly.
The highlight of the viewing was the Farnborough Air Show and the breaking of the sound barrier by a jet plane. Reception was
excellent through the day. However, reception became more spasmodic in the evening when Miss Yvonne de Carlo introduced
beauty competition finalists. Needless to say reception was again excellent the day following the beauty pagent.Oh, cruel fate.
