What is Cork City Community Radio?

Established in 2009, Cork City Community Radio 100.5FM is a volunteer-led, not-for-profit local radio station that runs for 6 months of the year (on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays). It is available on FM at 100.5FM or on the Tune In app from anywhere in the world. We also record our shows and upload same online and push them out through our social media and website.

The station is financed wholly by donations from organisations looking to support this initiative as gestures of good will or indeed looking to expand their reach to the Cork local Community in an inimitable manner.

With an excitingly unique range of community centered programs, Cork City Community Radio offers over 10,000* Cork local listeners (and overseas listeners) something truly different. Our audience is constantly growing, and feedback proves that our concept is a winner in Cork.

Our programming schedule includes a mix of talk and music shows catering to all aspects of community interest. Please see below sample show listing:
