Broadcasting to Youghal Town and the surrounding areas of East Cork and West Waterford on 104fm, Community Radio Youghal went on air in October 1995. It was one of eleven stations licensed by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland under the pilot scheme for community radio stations and in 2008 we were granted a ten year broadcast license. 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 studios in Nagle House, we broadcast 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year.
Our programming includes Current Affairs (mainly local issues but including national issues that have a local impact), Sport, Inclusiveness, the Arts, Women’s Issues and items of Local Historical interest. We also broadcast a range of specialist music programmes including Classical, Country & Irish, Traditional Irish music, Jazz, Pipe Bands and much much more.
We also provide live coverage of major local sporting events, St Raphael’s Open Day and outside broadcast from special events from time to time. Listeners are also kept up to date with reports of Youghal Town Council meetings.
Our signal reaches Ardmore, Ballymacoda, Clashmore, Kinsalebeg, Knockanore, Killeagh and Inch amongst other places.
