NUI Galway Radio Society are delighted to announce the second National Student Radio Conference will take place in NUI Galway on Saturday, March 7th 2015.

Registration for the conference opens at 11am on Saturday with talks running until 5pm.

The conference is supported by Craol, the representative, co-ordinating, lobbying, training, & support organisation for Irish Community Radio; NUI Galway Societies’ Office and Flirt FM 101.3.

The conference will not specifically focus on student radio but will rather offer an all-encompassing look at the medium and the structures built around it. There will be informative talks from some of Ireland’s top media organisations, hands-on demonstrations, Q&A sessions and other special events. The conference is also a great chance to network and meet like-minded students from all around the country.

Denzil Lacey, managing director of ZAVA media, is the first speaker confirmed to be attending the conference.

Tickets for the conference can be found on This year Early-Bird and Group-Rate options have been introduced. Early-Bird tickets will cost €8 while groups of 10 or more people can purchase tickets for €6 each. Tickets go up to full price from March 2nd. Ticket holders will be given a welcome goodie pack, lunch and admittance to the post conference social. Also included is entrance to a pre-event taking place on Friday March 6th for those travelling to Galway early.

A further press release will be issued with details on speakers and events taking place in the run up to the event. A spokesperson is available for interviews.

Accommodation information


The bus and train stations in Galway are approximately 1km from the University, and it should take 10-15 minutes to get there on foot.

A quick Google for hostels throws up lots of results in Galway City Centre – there should be no need for trekking to somewhere kilometres away. Expect to pay from €20 for a bed in a dorm – but do book as soon as you know you’re coming to the conference, as Galway is a tourist destination at the weekend  – even outside the summer!

Another option may be trying a B&B in the area – they do reasonable rates too, and there’s lots of modern and stylish options in town. If you want a cracking view, you can travel a little further to Salthill, it’s absolutely beautiful, but still within walking distance of NUI Galway.
