Dublin market whilst very crowded, it’s actually fairly static. In the list below there has only been two one changes in the order: 2FM down and Newstalk up.  

2FM lost about a quarter of its listeners in the capital and is now firmly rooted, like Wolves last year,  to the bottom of the table. Actually, things are so bad at the station (and no offence is intended here) that they are only 37,000 listeners away from Lyric FM. The original populist station is fast approached by the specialist Lyric.

Big gains for both Newstalk and FM104. Q102 will have to wait for another quarter to overtake 98FM.  4FM doesn’t rate in Dublin and Phantom is still unable to keep listeners.
