Christmas FM returns to the airways tomorrow

It’s finally time to break out the Christmas decorations and deck the halls as Christmas FM is back on air at midday tomorrow – Monday 28th November.


The much-loved station, which switches Christmas on in Ireland marking the start of the official Christmas season for many, will play round-the-clock Christmas tunes, spreading an abundance of festive cheer and seasonal goodwill in the run up to the big day.



Christmas FM, which is celebrating its 15th year on air this year, has raised over three million euro for a range of charities since it began broadcasting. This year, the radio station has launched a new fundraising initiative called ‘The Magic of Christmas,’ which brings together Barnardos, Barretstown, Make-A-Wish Ireland and The Community Foundation for Ireland as their official charity partners for the next three years.


Christmas FM is aiming to raise over €1,000,000 over the three years to help the charities support vulnerable children in our communities affected by traumatic life events such as poverty, abuse, neglect and bereavement, as well as supporting children whose lives are affected by serious childhood illness.


Listen on FM or just log on to or listen on the app, your smart speaker or connected device at any time of the day to hear your favourite Christmas hits. Christmas FM will also broadcast on Virgin Media Channel 900.
