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 have being broadcasting since July 1st 1995. We broadcast six hours of live radio 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 the smallest radio station operating in Ireland with a possible audience within a franchise area of 10,500 people. The management and operation of the station is undertaken on a voluntary basis assisted by a small core staff.
