Welcome to the Irish Radio Canada Website. We are proud to share our Internet Radio Station. In 2005 we commenced On-Air broadcasting with CHIN 97.9FM producing and presenting The Gaelic Hour as a weekly show. in Sept 2016 we launched this new format. You can now enjoy a selection of music every day and we will be able to expand on the number of hours of interviews, as time goes on. I would like to encourage you to submit your music selection and hopefully I can find what you like in my library. The Archives section of the site will continue to provide access to the Gaelic Hour shows since 2006. Twitter, Facebook page and group will become more relevant in communicating and I hope to increase the use of Instagram as time goes on. If you have some suggestions, please visit the contact page and send on your ideas. The 11 years on air have been fun, but the effort in raising the large sum required to buy the time has become more onerous and the online station offers the opportunity to increase content and reduce costs. You can listen to the station using a variety of tools. The player on this page may be the simplest. The links below provide additional choices of players. Also, you can use your Smart Speaker to ask Alexa or Google for "Irish Radio Canada from TuneIn" I hope you enjoy and continue to listen.

Seamus Kelleher was born in Galway city in 1954. The youngest of five children, he studied piano at age nine and continued to do so until he picked up the guitar at age fourteen. Within a few weeks, Seamus knew what he would be doing for the rest of his life. By age 15, he was performing acoustic concerts at venues all over Galway. By 16 he joined a rock group called Spoonful where he switched from acoustic to electric guitar. He quickly developed a reputation for his flamboyant blues-style guitar often opening for bands such as Thin Lizzy. Seamus toured the US in 1974 with a band called Rock & Roll Circus. Shortly after the tour, he packed his bags and moved to New York where once again he quickly developed a large following. He performed all over the US and Europe with the Sean Fleming Band.
