Fergal Mitchell

I’ve been involved in Irish radio since 1993.  I started with my first radio show on Dublin’s Kiss FM in 1993, which at the time was the first ‘commercial’ pirate station to operate since the ‘super pirates’ of the ’80’s. I’ve also been involved in radio in the US and Australia where I’ve worked the international airwaves and also in clubs as a DJ.

I currently work full-time in the online world but my hobby and interest in radio still exists and so I’m involved every year in December with Christmas FM, having been with the station since its first year of start up.

Where i'm from
Dublin, Rathfarnham and a massive Leinster/rugby fan - but this year his brother in law was part of the Limerick All Ireland Hurling winning team so I'm being converted (only a little)!
