The firm are proud supporters of the award-winning programme, having regularly contributed to the Morning Mix for over thirteen years.
Corcoran was presented with the prestigious National Military Award for ‘services above and beyond the call of duty during the Covid 19 Pandemic’ on Friday, May 8.
Corcoran and Minister for Health Simon Harris are the only two civilians to be honoured with this award by FESSEF – the Frontline Emergency and Security Services Eire Forum.
David O’ Grady, Assistant Commander and Regional Director of the Order of Malta shared the news with Alan live on South East Radio’s Morning Mix: ‘This is a national military award for all emergency services personnel but today an exception is being made to award it to a lay person Mr. Alan Corcoran for services above and beyond the call of duty in the South East.’
“This is something I’ll treasure for the rest of my days,” said Corcoran.
“I’m accepting this on behalf of the listeners to South East Radio’s Morning Mix, all of the guests who appear on the show and my colleagues here at South East Radio.”
