Event description

Description

During the Easter Rising a message was broadcast from O’Connell Street to the world announcing the establishment of an Irish Republic. And this was only the beginning. Be it Pirate Radio, Free Radio or Community Radio Ireland has a fascinating history of citizens taking to the airwaves.

This event will look at the history of many of these achievements in broadcasting – We will be telling the story of the local Irish stations from the 1970’s and 80’s onwards, the key role Ireland played in the famous off-shore pirate radio ships, and examining the motives behind some of the projects- be they political, a form of self-expression or simply the desire to play great music! We will also examine why broadcasting regulations are so restrictive, and discuss how new technologies are providing fresh opportunities for the determined enthusiast.

Amongst the contributors will be individuals with years of experience of ‘free’ and community Radio and also some who spent time on one of the most famous Pirate Radio ship of all!
