it will depend on whether the mux is standard dab or dab+ . if dab+ then you will need a radio that supports it which all dab radios don't.
the setup could also be very local with low/restricted coverage so you may have to specifically travel around to look for somewhere to pick it up.

I was using a DAB/DAB+ compattable radio. Must be on low power then. Best of luck to all involved, it’s a great idea

How many radio stations are on dab now? My friend in the centre of Cork says he can’t get anything apart from RTÉ and red fm and cork 96. Not even any rds. What frequency is the dab on?

Channel 5A, it's either on a low power, a low site (or both) because it's only really receivable in a small area.

Who is (seriously) making such a suggestion anywhere worldwide?
Its technically unsuitable

An old Band-3 (or Band III) TV aerial (in good condition) would be more effective that bits of wire for DAB.
As used for receiving RTE 1 and 2 analogue TV from Kippure ...

But importantly installed so that the rods are vertical, not horizontal (as was the case with Kippure TV)

Something I've been planning to do is remove a still fairly good condition old Band 3 box antenna and put it on a pole to wave around in the general DAB direction (whatever the closest one is). I've been loathe to get too close to its position on the wall because of the presence of some particularly territorial small black bees.

In Bray and Greystones, there's no point in having a DAB receiver.
