The Radio Luimni page

Find a selection of material from Limerick's 80s pirate Radio Luimni and the late John "The Man" Frawley! In the summer of 1983 John The Man and Radio Luimni operated from a shed in Limerick behind a furniture shop. The antenna was a longwire between the rear of the shop and Catholic school on the other side of Sexton street. The station operated then on 975-981 kHz. He was prior to that in the 1386-1390 kHz region, and later went to 1125.He did get out fairly well indeed as he was a regular in Norway around local sunrise. Very characteristic. While on a Irish pirates safari in 1983 I went to his station and had a chat while on air. I also took some pics you may take a look at below.
