The radio station gives a voice to the community of Limerick City and its surrounding areas

Limerick City Community Radio (LCCR) is a voluntary, non-profit, Limerick-based radio station which has for the last eight years, given a voice to the community of Limerick City and its surrounding areas, while also providing quality entertainment for listeners.  

Limerick City Community Radio is hosting an LCCR fun table quiz in Bobby Byrnes pub, O’Connell Avenue on Thursday, November 17, 2022, at 8:30 pm and this sure is an event not to be missed with the winning prize being a flight voucher to Paris as well as loads of other raffle prizes up for grabs separate to quiz winners.  

The station was established under Richard Smith, Derek Shine, Mike O’Connor, Liam Byrne, John Frawley, and John Murphy in 2014. It was later licensed by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland on 99.9FM during weekends from January to December, following the station’s pilot run.    

Limerick City Community Radio started in a single room above Windmill Motors as an online station, the station has since moved its office to its permanent premises on Edward Street in 2020, which marked a new chapter in the history of LCCR.

LCCR covers a vast range of topics, subjects, and music genres. Not just on FM but online as well. One show you could be listening to is Rock, another Country, and another 80’s, to name a few. Cookery, technology, and disability issues are also regular shows at LCCR.   There is truly something for everyone in this station as those who run it are local, and they know what the locals want.

Since its establishment, the alternative radio station has worked tirelessly to give a voice to the ordinary people of Limerick and to help those in need. Notably, in 2019,  staying true to its motto “Your City. Your station. Your voice”, the station held a 12-hour telethon to raise vital funds for Leon O’ Connor, a Limerick student that suffers from Multiple Sclerosis.

Richard Smith, Chairperson of Limerick City Community Radio said, “The door at LCCR is always open to community groups and organisations to either come in and talk about their organisations or even have their own slot either online or FM. The same goes for anyone that has an idea and would like to discuss it with us. We also facilitate TY’s, work placement students from many of the local schools, colleges and universities. We have also assisted some voluntary groups by supplying PA equipment for functions and events.”  

Speaking about the LCCR fun table quiz he added, “The biggest challenge as most small voluntary organisations will know is funding. There are only certain programmes of funding that we can apply for as we are a City-based organisation and not yet a full-time station. That’s why we are holding an LCCR fun table quiz and invite everyone to come out to show their support!”

A table of four is required and costs €40 to participate, making it €10 per person. A good deal considering how excellent the prize is.
