Five FM is a radio station 'based' in Newry, County Down. It broadcasts on FM 100.5/101.1FM to Newry City and the surrounding areas of Northern Ireland. The station claims to broadcast a mix of news, sport, music and community information for the area but most of its broadcasts (138 out of 168 hours per week) are from the 'Q Network' and not local to, or broadcast from Newry. One of the station's directors is Lord Kilclooney, the former Ulster Unionist Deputy Leader and MP, also known as John Taylor.
