Community Radio 257

Community Radio 257


Dublin Community Broadcasting appeared on May 29th 1983 in the midst of the chaos surrounding the raids a few days earlier on Radio Nova and Sunshine Radio.

They changed name very shortly afterwards to Community Radio 257.

The station, which broadcast from Portmarnock in north Co Dublin, had equipment seized by P&T officials on December 9th 1983 due to interference at Dublin Airport.
