For shortwave enthusiasts, we have extracted those stations which also broadcast on shortwave.  This page is called the  A-Z of Irish Shortwave Pirates.

Anyone who can send any input whatsoever for this section is more than welcome to do so. Assistance is seriously required. There are many stations we know little more than frequencies and locations. We need volunteers. Especially welcome are people involved in the various stations that are able to write personal recollections.

Many pages are still blank. This is a long project.
 

Web work since June 2008 now means that Radio Dublin for example can be found under "D". The Radio XXXX stations were formerly found under "R"
