Christmas FM

It’s the perfect way to give back and hear some Christmas classics in the lead-up to the big day!

It’s been just over two weeks since Christmas FM returned to our airwaves to kick off the festive season.

While the seasonal radio station is renowned for bringing the best Christmas classics, its main goal is to raise funds for charities across Ireland.

Christmas FM’s Donation Day is its most important day and is just a week away.

On December 20th, the station will kickstart their 12-hour long festive radiothon from 7:00 am.

Until 7:00 pm, they will be on air raising vital funds for Barnardos, Barretstown, Make-A-Wish Ireland and Community Foundation Ireland through ‘The Magic of Christmas’. 

Last year, this fundraising initiative saw major generosity from the public raising close to €300,000 for the charities.

From 2022 to 2024, the station’s campaign aims to raise over €1,000,000 for these children’s charities and, in a bid to maximise the impact of the funds raised, helping as many children in need as possible  

Since the launch of the festive radio station in 2008, it has raised upwards of €3 million for a variety of charities nationwide.

Now, it’s in 16th year, Christmas FM is calling on people of Ireland to tune in and donate where possible.
