Connemara Community Radio is a community-based and run radio station broadcasting for 10 hours per day throughout the north-west Connemara region of Ireland.
We legally began broadcasting on the 1st of July 1995. The station dates back to 1988 when we started broadcasting as a pirate community radio station for a short time (6 weeks).
We broadcast six hours of live radio between 11.00 AM – 12.00 PM and 4.00 PM – 9.00 PM and 4 hours of the previous evenings programme from 12.00 AM – 4.00 PM.
It’s one of the smallest radio stations operating in Ireland with a possible audience within a franchise area of 12,500 people, with up to 30,000 people during the summer. The management and operation of the station is undertaken on a voluntary basis assisted by a small core staff.
Involved with the station we have a core of 90 volunteers
who contribute each week to the station as presenters, technicians,
correspondents, etc. We have enjoyed strong commitment by the
90 volunteers in the past 24 years and believe we can continue to rely
on this level of voluntary activity into the future.
