Christmas FM to return to the airwaves this weekend

by Rachel Darcy

One of Ireland’s greatest Christmas traditions returns this week, with Christmas FM set to be back on the airwaves from this Saturday.

The Christmas themed radio station will resume its annual broadcast from 12pm Saturday, November 28.

Christmas FM’s charity partner this year is ALONE, and the radio station is aiming to raise over €200,000.

These funds will enable ALONE to provide over 20,000 hours of vital support to older people in Ireland to enable them to live happily and independently in their own homes and communities.

Christmas FM will be celebrating its 13th year on air this year and, since it began broadcasting, has raised almost €2.5 million for a range of charities.

The costs of running Christmas FM are covered by various sponsors, ensuring that all on-air fundraising and donations will go directly to ALONE.

Cadbury, Coca Cola and An Post are premier FM sponsors for 2020 and the radio station will broadcast from the Ballsbridge Hotel, Dublin, who have kindly given the studio space for free. 

Anyone looking to get into the swing of Christmas will be able to tune in and find more information at, and you can follow Christmas FM on social media @christmasfm.
