About Northern Sound

Listen to the online radio of Northern Sound live, which commenced its radio service in 1989 alongside its twin station, Shannonside FM. While the two stations occasionally share programmes in their schedules, they also feature their own unique shows. Northern Sound Radio serves as the primary local radio station for counties Cavan and Monaghan and is owned by Radio Kerry Holdings Ltd. The radio station's target audience comprises adults, and as a result, its programming consists predominantly of speech-related content. Operating as a local radio station, it focuses mainly on locally relevant current affairs. The playlist offers a laid-back selection of pop music from the past 40 years, complemented by a generous dose of country and folk music. The station's news bulletins provide coverage of local news, sports, travel, and weather, primarily within its editorial area. Additionally, national and international news are also featured. On weekdays, NorthernSound kickstarts the day from 7am to 9am with "The Breakfast Roll" morning show, hosted by Sean McCaffrey, serving as the perfect appetizer for the day ahead.

Northern Sound slogan: "The Spirit of Cavan & Monaghan"
