Raidió Rí-Rá, founded in 2008, is an Irish language chart music radio station broadcasting on DAB in Waterford and Dublin, on the Internet, and, for approximately one month a year, on FM radio.

Information[edit]

Raidió Ri-Rá was created to mark Seachtain na Gaeilge in March 2008 under the working title of Raidió X. Following a competition, its name was changed to Raidió Rí-Rá.[1]

Digital Audition Productions and Conradh na Gaeilge collaborated to create an Irish language chart music radio station for young people. It broadcasts 24 hours a day with music and the latest pop news in Irish. It may be the only youth radio station broadcasting in a minority language in Europe.[citation needed]

The website has an estimated 35,000 page views per month.[citation needed]

During March, Raidió Rí-Rá broadcasts on FM in Dublin, Cork, Galway and, prior to 2011, Limerick, to mark Seachtain na Gaeilge.[2]

The radio station broadcast on DAB digital radio in the South-East DAB Trial in March 2011.[2]

The service hopes to be available on Saorview, Ireland's Digital terrestrial television Service.
