The building that Cork’s 96FM occupies first opened its doors in 1888.

In the mid 19th century, the Vincentian Fathers maintained a seminary at Saint Patrick’s Place in Cork, known as the Cork Diocesan Seminary. In 1888 the then bishop of Cork, Most Rev. Dr. O’Callaghan, invited the Christian Brothers to take charge of the St. Patrick’s Place establishment.

The school operated on St. Patrick’s Place for one hundred years. Marking the centenary in 1988, the College moved from its original site to a new location, one hundred metres away, on top of Sidney Hill.

Cork’s 96FM moved into the building in October 1994 after extensive renovations and renamed it Broadcasting House … and the rest is history, as they say.

Guided tours running at 5pm, 6.30pm & 8pm.
