ABOUT West Dublin Access Radio

Wdar Station Logo


Our motto is simple: our community is our station.

And that community is made up of a number of communities in west Dublin; Ballyfermot, Bluebell, Chapelizod, Clondalkin, Inchicore and Palmerstown.

We pride ourselves on how much all these communities are part of West Dublin Access Radio.Sometimes people dismiss community radio as glorified amateur radio where people indulge their passion for broadcasting while ignoring what community radio is supposed to be about. It’s not like that at West Dublin Access Radio.

Our station name is punctuated by the word ‘Access’ and our schedule is punctuated with groups of people and organisations that elsewhere would seldom get five minutes of airtime; much less the chance to produce and present a daily radio programme.

West Dublin Access Radio sounds like no other radio station! Nor do we want to. Our station sounds just like the communities that make up our part of west Dublin.
