The Irish Post - the newspaper for the Irish in Britain - reports:
"RTÉ Radio will proceed with plans to axe its longwave 252 service next year, it has been confirmed.
A spokesperson for the national broadcaster confirmed the closure will take place in 2017 but that it would “explore possible ways forward” to maintain links with the Irish community across Britain, many of whom rely on the service.
Today’s announcement comes despite efforts by the Irish community to stop, or at least further delay, the closure."

I noticed in the newsagents today that the Irish Post had also made it their front page story. So that looks like the end for another long wave station. Of course, many will remember the years 252 kHz broadcast Atlantic 252 which put in a great signal across Britain.
