Atlantic Radio was a pirate radio station which launched in March 1978. It was run by Joe Delaney and Johnny Kirrane and broadcast from a caravan at Navin’s Quarry in Co Mayo. Johnny Kirrane was known on air as ‘Big John’.
The station only ran for a few weeks. They had stolen power from a nearby office and were cut off when it was discovered.
The station returned in the 1980s broadcasting from Bushfield House in Hollymount, Co Mayo.
