RTÉ Radio 1 Extra is an offshoot of Irish radio station RTÉ Radio 1. It broadcasts parts of RTÉ Radio 1's regular schedule as well as sport, educational, and religious programmes.
Originally broadcast from the 100 kW medium wave transmitter at Tullamore, and previously from Athlone, this service ceased in March 2008. The European satellite transmission (Astra 28.2 East) ceased in January 2013, leaving only longwave, terrestrial digital (Saorview and DAB), and Saorsat. Of these, only the longwave signal is audible outside the country.
