This is cool, pridx.  I'd like to know how you identify them as well.

Hi guys !

For identifying the churches you have to pay attention to names and places mentioned in the prayers for the faithful and in the parish news. And then doing a lot of research on the internet.

So here is an example:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/40lzmawejiakl0q/Glounthaune.mp3?dl=0
You can hear funeral arrangements for a person with the surname "Walsh" (at arround 1:50 in the recording) and announcing the removal to "this" church. So can do a search at rip.ie for death notices from the last week and you will find an entry with all details going togenther with the announced one.
Of course in this case you can also identfy it at 3:35 when announcing "in this church here in Glounthaune" ;-)

Useful webpages can be found in my frequency list. But please be aware that the list is only a help where to start with own internet research about what you have heard, as the churches may change frequencies and times (I noticed several ones today on another frequency than last season):

Hope this helps for the beginning.
