The Irish Pirate Radio Exhibition


In December 2018, Ireland will commemorate the 30th anniversary of the closure of the golden era of Irish pirate radio. An exhibition will begin in May 2018 at the South Dublin County Library and then will tour the country bringing the history and story of pirate radio to a national audience. The exhibition is a collection of memorabilia, treasures and information sheets telling the colourful story of Irish pirate radio from the first station during the 1916 Easter Rising through the decades up to the golden era of pirate radio in the 1980's with iconic stations like Radio Nova, ERI, Boyneside and ABC Waterford. A series of lectures will be held throughout May on various aspects of pirate radio and radio in Ireland today.

This unique first time event will be an insight into Irish broadcasting history and social history in Ireland. 
Here an interview here on Flirt FM giving more details on the treasures that will be on display.
