Raidió na Life 106.4FM (Irish pronunciation: [ˈradʲiːoː n̪ˠɘ ˈlʲɪfʲɘ] (meaning "Liffey Radio") is an Irish-language radio station founded in 1993 and broadcasting in County Dublin, Ireland. In addition to being transmitted on FM, the station's output is available worldwide via the internet.


The first independent Irish-language radio station, Raidió na Life 102, came on the air in September 1993 covering Dublin and some neighbouring areas. It broadcasts under licence from the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.[1] Comharchumann Raidió Átha Cliath Teoranta, which was set up in 1989, is the organisation which owns and operates Raidió na Life 106.4fm. In October 2017, the station moved from the offices of 7 Merrion Square to new purpose built studios in the new headquarters of Foras na Gaeilge, located at 63-66 Amiens Street on the north side of the city.[2][3]
