This radio app has everything from news and sport – to pop, rock, indie, dance, jazz, and classical. It’s perfect for football, hurling, rugby, and UK soccer at the weekend.

Launching the app, the Minister for Communications, Alex White, said: “The Irish Radioplayer app will be of great benefit to all Irish radio stations that take part in it. Listeners will benefit from having a quality audio stream of their favourite local, regional or national radio shows available, regardless of where they are. It’s also an innovative way of promoting Irish stations in an increasingly competitive multi-platform environment.”
