The Irish Hospital Radio Network Network was founded in 2004 in conjunction with the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland as a representative body for existing Hospital Stations .
Our objective is to promote and support the development of existing and new hospital based radio stations.
The founding members were Beaumont Hospital Broadcasting Dublin, Cork University Hospital F.M., Mater Hospital Radio Dublin, Regional Hospital Radio Limerick, South Tipperary General Hospital Radio and St Ita's Hospital Radio Dublin.
The Network is funded by The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI 2016). Our Committee meets on average 4 times per year to plan and organise training and networking events. We also have conference calls between committee members as required.
Since our founding we have organised a number of National Networking Days , Awards Ceremonies, Training Workshops . We have produced Promotional Leaflets and Training Videos and the Promotional Video at the top of this page which was distributed to Hospital Administrators to educated them in the benefits of Hospital Radio Station.
The IHRN are very proud of the volunteers at each station who give freely of their time each week to inform and entertain our patients and residenst. To recognise this dedication the network awards service pins to volunteers on 5 , 10 and 15 years service as a very small token of appreciation.
