The radio station gives a voice to the community of Limerick City and surrounding areas

Limerick City Community Radio (LCCR) is a Limerick-based not-for-profit voluntary radio station which for the past eight years has given a voice to the community of Limerick City and surrounding areas, whilst providing entertainment of quality to listeners.

Limerick City Community Radio is hosting a fun LCCR table quiz at the Bobby Byrnes pub, O’Connell Avenue on Thursday 17th November 2022 at 8.30pm and it is certainly an event not to be missed with the winning prize being a flight good for Paris .

The station was established under Richard Smith, Derek Shine, Mike O’Connor, Liam Byrne, John Frawley and John Murphy in 2014. It was later licensed by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland to 99.9FM during weekends from January to December, following the station pilot.

Limerick City Community Radio started in a single room above Windmill Motors as an online station, the station has since moved its office to its permanent premises on Edward Street in 2020 which marked a new chapter in the history of the LCCR.

LCCR covers a huge range of music topics, subjects and genres. Not only on FM but also online. One show you might listen to is Rock, another Country, and another 80s, to name a few. Cooking, technology and disability issues are also regular shows at the LCCR. There really is something for everyone at this resort as the people who run it are local and they know what the locals want.

Since its inception, the alternative radio station has worked tirelessly to give voice to the ordinary people of Limerick and to help those in need. In particular, in 2019, by remaining faithful to its motto “Your City. Your station. Your Voice,” the station hosted a 12-hour telethon to raise vital funds for Leon O’Connor, a Limerick student who suffers from multiple sclerosis.

Richard Smith, Chairman of Limerick City Community Radio, said: “LCCR’s door is always open for community groups and organizations to come and talk about their organizations or even have their own slot online or on FM. The same goes for anyone who has an idea and wants to discuss it with us. We also facilitate TYs, internship students at many local schools, colleges and universities. We have also helped some volunteer groups by providing sound equipment for receptions and events. »

Speaking of the fun LCCR quiz, he added, “The biggest challenge, as most small voluntary organizations know, is funding. There are only certain funding programs we can apply for as we are a city based organization and not yet a full time station. That’s why we’re hosting a fun LCCR quiz and inviting everyone to show their support! »

A table of four is required and costs €40 to participate, or €10 per person. A good deal considering the excellence of the price.
