Radio Juliet


Radio Juliet was a Cork pirate station set up by Michael Healy in 1964. The station broadcast a wide variety of content and was manned by up to a dozen students with much of the output in the Irish language. Frequency was 210m MW. For on air identification the students used aliases taken from Shakespeare plays.

To stay ahead of the authorities most of the necessary parts for the studio were housed in biscuit tins, which were moved from location to location on the backs of Honda 50s.

Despite this Radio Juliet lasted just a few days.

Michael Healy was later involved on the setting up of Saor Raidió Chonemara.
