BOYNESIDE RADIO

Boyneside Radio launched from Donaghy’s Mill in Drogheda, Co Louth in November 1978 and was ran by Eobhan McDonnell. It was previously known as Local Radio Drogheda and a later split led to the formation of Community Radio Drogheda in 1981.

Boyneside launched a number of satellite, opt-out stations, some of which lasted until the mass pirate closedowns of December 1988.

These were:-
Boyneside Radio Dublin, which broadcast on 105.5MH and 244m from the Crofton Airport Hotel.
Boyneside Radio Kells in Co Meath which broadcast on 266m and closed in August 1986.
Boyneside Radio Navan in Co Meath which broadcast on 1332kHz and closed with the main station on December 31st 1988.
Boyneside Radio North, which ran close to the border in Carrickarron on 207m and closed with the main station on December 31st 1988.
