Wired FM broadcasts from Mary Immaculate college and serves Limerick Institute of Technology, and the university of Limerick.

If you have a Radio Society in UL you should get in touch with them with regard to wired FM. I studied in LIT (Then Limerick RTC) and that is how I got into Wired FM.

They broadcast on 106.8 and 96.8 FM

They broadcast 24 hours a day during Rag Week from the University of Limerick.

Do you have the web address for wired I can add it to the resorces thread

you could ring the station and find out what the story is.

I thought mary Immaculate was part of UL anyway.

Was that a UL decision or was there just no radio society in UL to facilitate it.
