In Cork DHR has replaced NRG on 104.9
I'll be in the city on Friday and confirm whether this new pirate DAB mux exists or not. :)

Just a few additions 107 Cork at the weekend was a relay of the legal Radio Caroline from the UK.
And 107.1 is Retro Now in Dublin

107.1 is Meath is it? Well you can hear it crystal in the centre of Dublin. Strongest signal out to the West is 88.1 and Storm NE is mega all the way from Newry right down to Mullingar.

I'd imagine RetroNow has moved from Meath - might have Trax's rig/site. Storm NE is reaching Mullingar? That's some range.

It is possible but i haven't saw any evidence to support it. I did put a note under it that it can be received in dublin though.

Great thread! Never realised things were so active in Ireland.

What are the go to stations for any Dance music/Hip Hop/Reggae/Dub?

Dance music and any bit of reggae if you’re lucky: Chill/Phever/OpenTempo
If you’re happy with commercial dance (or a mix of that and underground), you’ve got Hot FM, Now FM, RetroNow, Power or True

Nice one DnB Head. Not interested in anything commercial so will add the first 3 suggestions to my list on Audials 👍

Hi all,
Any chance of a Dublin pirate update? I’m currently on holiday in holyhead and will visit Dublin on Tuesday.

Reception in holyhead favours Belfast over Dublin, possibly south stack is attenuating the Dublin stations.
So I’m not expecting to hear pirates from here unless the blank carrier I heard on 87.5 with deep fading at midday today turns out to be anything interesting

Thanks in advance for any info
