Speaking ahead of this year’s first broadcast, Donal Quinlan, Station Manager/Director at Cork City Community Radio 100.5FM, said: “I always dreamed of Cork City Community Radio 100.5FM becoming a staple of the local airwaves and experiencing a lengthy run, but to be gearing up for our tenth year on air is mind blowing. Yet here we are! We have such a fantastic team of volunteers this year and I would like to extend a huge ‘thank you’ to them and to everyone else who, over the past 10 years, has had a hand in the station’s success from volunteers to sponsors.  A special tribute has to be made to two late, great men, Eoin O’Callaghan of O’Callaghan Properties and James O’Sullivan of M&P O’Sullivan, both of whom were instrumental in helping us get to this stage.”
A winner in Cork
He continued: “Our audience is constantly growing and feedback proves that our concept is a winner in Cork. We are now counting on the support of the local community to keep listening and supporting us for another 10 years! Obviously, the community and our listeners are the most important thing to us, but we all know, you cannot run an entity such as this without donations. The station isfinanced 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. We have a number of donation and sponsorship packages available to anyone who is interested in supporting the continuation of the station’s work, so we welcome those looking to further enhance their Community Support or Corporate Social Responsibility plans.”

Cork City Community Radio is available on 100.5FM, on the Tune In app, on live stream at from anywhere in the world and shows are recorded and uploaded online following broadcast. The station and its volunteers encourage listeners to get in touch should they need support, and likewise, Cork City Community Radio always welcomes support from other organisations looking to donate or contribute in some way.
