Radios

The radio collection of Pat Herbert collector and curator of the museum, covers all aspects of radio and the history of communication in Ireland.

Philips Radio

Philips Radio – First FM set in Ireland

Here we will attempt to illustrate the wide range of radios within the collection – featuring well known models such as Roberts, Bush, Pilot, Philips, Pye, Cossor, Osram and Opus.

There are also handmade radios – which illustrate the ingenuity and interest of radio lovers here in Ireland during the early years of the Irish state when imports were scarce.
