Irish Pirate Radio Museum

Ireland has a long and colourful pirate radio history dating back to the iconic events of 1916 and the world's first pirate radio broadcasts during the Easter Rising.

A meeting will take place upstairs at Branigan's pub just off O'Connell Street near the Pro Cathedral on June 7th 2017 beginning at 7pm. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss plans for a gallery exhibition or a permanent pirate radio museum, how the radio memorabilia should be collected, archived and curated and the most important question how it should be funded.
