Limerick City Community Radio awarded a new broadcasting licence for 2021

By I Love Limerick correspondent Mary Caroline McCarthy

Limerick City Community Radio has been informed by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland that it has been granted another 100-day pilot sound broadcasting license to commence January 2021.


Limerick City Community Radio is a non-profit radio station that has been broadcasting the stories and voices of Limerick people since 2014. This year marked a new chapter for the LCCR team as they secured their own permanent premises on Edward Street in Limerick City, a development that was a long time coming. 

Limerick City Community Radio is Limerick City’s first and only non-profit community station that is entirely community run through volunteers. Their motto is “Your City. Your station. Your voice”. The station was licensed by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland on 99.9FM at weekends from January to December 2016, it’s third license run following a pilot run in 2014 and a 100-day license in 2015.

Limerick City Community Radio is committed to serving its community irrespective of creed, class, colour, or race, to giving a voice to those not served by the mainstream broadcasting services, to educating, informing and inspiring people in our community and promoting a sense of community and civic pride.

The team is delighted with the announcement and they look forward to entertaining and informing the Limerick listeners once again in 2021, they will re-commence broadcasting on Saturday, January 16 on 99.9FM. As well as the weekend FM service they also run an online service Monday – Friday with live programmes from 8 am to 6 pm with repeats of weekend shows from 6 pm. LCCR licence  

You can listen to their broadcast online, tune in to their web player, or find them on the TuneIn app on your mobile.

Michael O’Connor, the community liaison officer for LCCR said, “Good Morning Limerick! We are delighted to announce that as of Monday, January 11 we will be resuming our radio services to the community firstly with our online shows commencing on our website and apps from 8 am to 6 pm with our set block of great shows and presenters, plus a tonne of new shows after 6 pm. So please join us to make 2021 a bumper year for Community Radio in Limerick and its surrounding area!”

I Love Limerick wishes them well on another year of bringing news to the community of Limerick.
