what we do
Welcome to Together FM, Community Radio and the voice of West Dublin., Clondalkin, Ballyfermot, Cherry Orchard, Palmerstown, Inchicore and Bluebell.
Together, we highlight the wide range of views and interests from all the communities through radio programmes and volunteer participation. Topics range from new music, local and current affairs, local sports, local history, mindfulness and more.
We are funded by volunteers, sponsorship from local businesses, grants from funding organisations, and our own fundraising in the community.
Our goal is to continue to represent our communities and make the transition from online only to radio broadcasting. We are working hard to reflect the needs of our community and depend on your participation and support. If you would like to join us, contact us.
Thank you for supporting your local community radio
what is community radio
Community radio is when local people produce and broadcast their own programs and participate in operating the station. It is a community space for people to meet and collaborate. It is extraordinarily fun and often life-changing. It typically leads to individual creativity and self-empowerment. Participants find it extremely satisfying, not just to make radio in this unique fashion, but to also help transform community life.
Community radio outlets may carry news and information programming geared toward the local area (particularly immigrant or minority groups who may be poorly served by major media outlets). Specialised musical shows are also often a feature of many community radio stations.
