About Shannonside FM

Listen to the online radio of Shannonside FM live, which was launched in 1989 alongside its twin station, Northern Sound. Shannonside Radio serves County Longford, Leitrim, and Roscommon, where it is available on analogue frequencies. While the radio schedule includes networked programming with its twin station, it also features its own unique programmes. The station is owned by Radio Kerry Holdings Ltd.

The news sections prioritize locally relevant news, sports coverage, travel updates, and weather information, in addition to national and international news. The radio's playlist offers a mild selection of the best pop music from the last four decades, and it also features country and folk music to diversify the musical palette.
