FIRST PIRATE RADIO BROADCAST

The rebels launched their own radio station to circumvent the strictly controlled media from Ireland. The station located in O'Connell Street was monitored in Dun Laoghaire and Wales and reports of the Rising were printed in the New York newspapers before their British counterparts. The station broadcasted on 300m MW from Tuesday 25th to Thursday 27th April and was operated by Fergus O'Kelly and Joseph 'Blimey' O'Connor.
