Executive producer of the Limerick Community Radio Paddy O'Neill outlines some of the achievements of the station over the past few years, which includes broadcasting from other locations throughout the county.
The success of the project highlights the need for the establishment of local and community radio stations throughout the country. Listeners to the station come from throughout the county including Rathkeale, Askeaton, Abbeyfeale, Kilmallock, Newcastewest, and Limerick City.
The Limerick Leader newspaper has made a complaint about what it considers unfair advertising objecting to RTÉ collecting advertising revenue on a community station which is run by unpaid volunteers. Paddy O’Neill defends the position of community radio and says he is reaching out to local media to get involved in the station.
I don’t want the Limerick Leader to suffer in any way.
