The Community Radio Youghal AGM took place in Cumann Na Daoine on Wednesday night last, with a large crowd of CRY volunteers, staff and members were in attendance.


The station Management reported on a healthy Financial Trading year which puts the station in a healthy position entering our new licencing period which will come into effect in October.  The station saw its broadcasting hours expand for the second year in succession in 2017 and now operates 18 hours a day, 7 days a week with a new range of late night programmes on offer.


Some of the year’s highlights included successful fundraisers including the stations annual Radiothon /Spinathon. The Bi Annual Golf Classic and the  inaugural HomeBirds Music Festival which saw in excess of 45 Bands and musical acts perform in venues across Youghal Town   over 3 Nights in May.


Motions passed on the night included a slight change in  the stations Membership Structure and a call on more  volunteers to help out with Fundraising events.    Calls were also made for innovative ways to celebrate the stations 40th year in existence in 2019.
