Brace yourselves for the ultimate in festive musical cheer, as Christmas FM has once again hit the airwaves.

For the next four weeks Christmas lovers get their fill of festive tunes, with the station broadcasting from 7am to midnight daily.

The popular station - which officially returned to the airwaves today - can also be listened to from anywhere around the world through www.christmasfm.com

Christmas FM was granted a temporary licence by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) to run until Saturday, December 27th.

You can tune in to the charity radio station wherever you are in the country, or listen online from anywhere in the world on their website: ChristmasFM.com.

The volunteer-led station will broadcast festive music and Christmas-related information, while raising awareness of and funds for its chosen charity this year, Age Action Ireland.

Proceeds from text messages, which cost €2, will go to the charity. Text XMAS to 50300, then a space and then your message.

Sponsorship for the station will be covered by Centra this year, so every cent from any donations received will go straight to the charity.

The station will be available during that time in Dublin City and County; Limerick City and part-County; Cork City and part-County; Galway City; and parts of Counties Waterford, Wexford, Kilkenny and Tipperary.
