If RTÉ won’t do it…
There has been a positive reaction to the recent launch of the Play Irish app – an internet radio station that plays exclusively Irish music all day and all of the night.
Currently the app offers a series of curated playlists featuring everyone from Horslips to Hozier, Snow Patrol to U2, but plans to introduce specialist shows created by some of Ireland’s best musicians, DJs and industry ‘movers’n’shakers’ are afoot.
The service is available globally online (at link below) or via the Radioplayer platform and mobile app.
Sinead Troy, one of the founders, said:
“Every serious music city or territory has its own small but cool radio station that champions new and exciting music. Play Irish will be ours to champion Irish music at home and internationally.”
