Radio Carrick

Radio Carrick


Radio Carrick was an early 80s Tipperary pirate station based in Carrick-on-Suir. It joined forces with Clonmel Local Radio to form CBC Radio late in 1981.

Radio Carrick was set up by Gerry Gannon and the station’s studio was located in his garage. Gerry became the MD of CBC when the new station emerged.
