Time for RTE Radio 1 to change.
Thursday, May 12th, 2011 | Author:

A record number of people in the UK are listening to the radio, with 47.3m tuning into at least one station each week, according to Rajar figures.

BBC Radio 4 drew a record average weekly audience of 10.83m, from January to March, with its Today programme breaking 7m for the first time.


Maybe it’s time RTE ditched the advertising, drastically reduced the music and have some more decent Programming on RTE Radio one instead of Personalities.

Stolen in Limerick
Tuesday, January 25th, 2011 | Author:

Driver’s window smashed and head stolen

Icom IC-2800H Two way radio head unit/Display pulled from the Dashboard

About 12:45am 25th January 2011. Snatched from Driveway by two men or youths in a Saloon Car or hatchback.

The main radio under the seat wasn’t touched, as no doubt they thought it was a GPS. These radio sets are very rare in Ireland, as very few ever imported. They have not been made for some years. Replace Head/Display units are not available. This may even be the only one in all of Munster.

(Only this display part taken)

It’s an Amateur Band two way radio for 430MHz and 145MHz.

If you have any information, please contact Roxboro Garda Station in Limerick City or use the Contact form here if you wish be anonymous.
