RFE is heard on listener supported radio, and in order to keep its vital perspective on the air, requests contributions from listeners on a quarterly basis. Our program is  quoted in newspapers and influential political blogs in Ireland.

Premiums of appreciation for contributors will include an iconic  CD "Easter 1916" made in 1966 which combines songs and interviews to tell the story of the Easter 1916 Rising in a way that is unmatched a half century later, and Billy O'Connor's "Confessions of A Bronx Bookie.

John McDonagh and Martin Galvin will host.
