Arrghh! Irish Broadcast Museum Looking for Radio Pirates

Officials at the Irish Broadcasting Hall of Fame are looking for information and materials for either a gallery or entire museum devoted to pirate broadcasting. Newsline reports that a then-unlicensed radio station broadcasting from Dublin in 1916 played a key role in the "Easter Rising," in which Ireland broke away from Great Britain. A meeting was scheduled in early June among museum officials, broadcasters, former pirate radio employees and radio enthusiasts to discuss what the proposed museum should collect and display.
