Help Grow Loughrea Community Radio

Loughrea Community Radio has been set up by and will be run entirely by volunteers. The members come from all walks of life with differing levels of experience and background.

What brought us together was a dream held by the Loughrea Chamber of Commerce Committee to create a strong united community feel within Loughrea in order to make it a great place to live, work and visit

What binds us together as a committee is a joint passion for bringing this project forward and providing first class entertainment and news for our listeners.

Our ultimate aim is to provide Loughrea with two days of broadcasting via an FM wavelength - made up of music, discussion, documentaries and news. As such we intend to be a valuable tool for bringing the Loughrea community closer together and provide a crucial link for the diaspora.

We have a premises lined up which requires some work in order to ensure they comply with BAI and disability guidelines. Two builders have volunteered their time but funding is required to provide the building materials.

We also urgently require broadcasting and technical equipment for the studio.

Once we have the premises up to spec and our equipment in place we can start to broadcast digitally. We would hope that our application for a licence will have been approved by April 2020.

And we now need YOUR HELP!!  Any community radio project relies largely on the support of the community - businesses, individuals, community groups etc - for funding.

Your support would massively enable us to bring this project forward in order that we can fulfill our dream of going live with our broadcasts.

The sooner we are on air the sooner you will all be able to tune in and enjoy the many amazing shows we have planned for you!

We look forward to your kind donations!!

Loughrea Community Radio ... Your Town, Your Voice, Your Music.
