About Community Radio Youghal

Broadcasting to Youghal Town and the surrounding area (Ardmore, Clashmore, Kinsalebeg, Knockanore, Killeagh, Inch and Ballymacoda amongst other places) on 104fm, Community Radio Youghal went on air in October 1995 as one of eleven stations licensed by the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland under the pilot scheme for community radio stations, and in June 1998 we were granted a five-year broadcast license. Having had a previous existence as a pirate station it is nice to be 100% legal. Like all community radio stations, we are a not for profit organisation and rely heavily on the goodwill of the community and businesses in the area to provide us with funding and other resources.

From our studio in the League of the Cross Hall, we broadcast 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. The range of programmes is almost limitless and includes current affairs (mainly local issues but including national issues that have a local impact), women's issues, classical music, items of local historical interest, sports, Country & Irish music, traditional Irish music and much much more. We provide live coverage of major local sporting events, St Raphael's Open Day and any special events that crop up from time to time. Listeners are also kept up to date with reports of Youghal Town Council meetings.
