Raidió na Life Celebrates its 20th Birthday


MUIRIS O FIANNACHTA, Station Manager of Raidió na Life talks to Noel McGuinness about the station’s 20th Anniversary celebrations.

Broadcasting in Dublin since 1993, Raidió na Life is a community-of-interest radio station set up to provide a community-oriented Irish language radio service to the Irish-speaking community of Dublin and surrounding areas on a non-profit basis. Community and education are some of the key pillars of Raidió na Life’s broadcasting philosophy. Raidió na Life integrates Irish language organisations, Irish speakers, people with an interest in the language and music-lovers of all kinds – including those who would not necessarily have regular contact with the Irish language. The station takes care to include a wide range of interests in its programmes, with a focus on Dublin city and county as well as the commuter belt. It is a multicultural and diverse community, vis-a-vis the range of interests, age profile, level of fluency in Irish and active participation in the Irish language community. Radió na Life is commited to providing as wide a choice of programming as is possible to serve that diversity.
