This is how Breffni Regional Radio in Cavan closed for the final time on December 30th 1988. New legislation forced all pirate stations in the state to be off the air by the start of 1989.

The final 90 minutes or so from the Cavan pirate before legislation forced it, and all other unlicensed stations, off the air at the end of 1988.

Cavan Community had been on air since 1983 and their country and pop music mix proved very popular. Now it was all coming to an end as we tune in from 1.36pm on 819kHz.
