Your contribution will pay for new equipment for Dundalk’s community radio studio and on location broadcasting service.
The equipment list is
two digital sounds desks – one for the main studio and one for the production studio
5 x sound processing and studio PC’s
6 x Mic Arms
a studio digital link for outside broadcasts
a portable outside broadcast sound desk
two OB headsets
a studio clock
In October we secured 75% funding from Louth Leader Partnership and to purchase this amazing equipment we need to raise €5,681.00 on our own and hope to achieve this before December 31st 2018.
Having brand new studio equipment will be a wonderful way to begin our 10-year licence in 2019.
One out of every 250 people in Dundalk have been part of making radio since we started in 2002. This is a great opportunity for us to invest in for the next 15 years.
It will be of enormous benefit for our community radio volunteers of all ages and especially for
live match commentaries
OB’s from community halls and events
studio panel discussions
providing certified radio training courses and summer camps
recording radio documentaries and radio dramas
In addition to continuing the wonderful rage of programming you hear the new studio equipment will bring Dundalk’s non-profit public service station up to national broadcast standard.
Celebrating Nollaig na mBan on air today are Caoimhe O’ Malley, Aoife Ní Mhaoláin, Town Talk producer Edel McMullan, Marie Fay, Ruta Nomeikiene and Marissa Lucchesi.

On Thursday 2nd April 2015 the Dundalk Lion’s in association with Dundalk FM ran a coffee morning. We received 120 mobile phones and some people left in a donation. Thanks to the Home Bakery for the fantastic buns and cakes, we would also like to thank Marion and all the staff of the Community Offices, for keeping us supplied with coffee and tea. If you still would like to donate your old mobile phones to this great cause, you can leave them into Dundalk FM studio.
