RAIDIÓ LUIMNÍ December 24th 1988

The final moments of the long-running Limerick pirate station. This recording is off 103FM and starts at 00:55 on Christmas Eve. It features Alf de Lacy bidding the station’s listeners farewell for the final time.

New legislation required all unlicensed stations to be off the air by the end of 1988.
